Calisto Medical has finished clinical trials of their digital glucose monitor that indicates blood glucose levels through bio-electromagnetic resonance.  The Glucoband is worn like a wrist watch and can indicate the wearer’s glucose levels continuously.  Hopefully this means we will see these hit the market soon.  From the Glucoband web site:

A wrist-watch-like Glucoband, with fully integrated LCD screen, electronic circuits, integrated electrodes, battery and adjustable wrist-band, is placed on the person’s wrist. The initial measurement process takes only a few minutes, however, in the monitoring mode, measurements can be continuous and only the frequency of measurements must be determined. The Glucoband targets diabetics who are measuring their own blood glucose, and medical personnel who are using blood glucose measuring and monitoring devices in clinics, hospitals and other point-of-care facilities. The measurements meet FDA requirements for accuracy and correlation.

The Company also plans to offer a maintenance agreement on the Glucoband, which will support its operation for as long as the maintenance is in effect. The design of the Glucoband is such that it may be used as a regular wrist-watch or be used as a blood glucose measurement device, at the discretion of the wearer. In 2007, the Company expects to introduce complementary products and Glucoband derivatives designed to target other segments of the world market and compete on price as well as performance.

    I have been waiting for a thing like this to come for over 10 years now, finally it is on the way to become true. It’s going to be great to se whether the b/s is on its way up or down. Great! I hope that i can buy it soon. I have also reported myself as a testperson if needed.

  9. Call me old Mr Skeptical…

    21 years a type 1 and I can say without worry of overstressing the situation that something like this would not only change my life but lengthen it too.
    All of us have a fuse that’s burning a lot faster than a non diabetic and these companies know of our hunger for true advancements in treatment.

    It’s just that one (as a diabetic) notices an obvious trend after a while for BS with these products that are promised yet never arrive (some were promised when I was 10 years old and first diagnosed and still unavailable) yet you still hear the same spool from the papers a few times a year about a breakthrough in technologies, and sure enough it’s that same tired old company trying to get more funding for the same product that obviously didn’t ever work in the first place.

    I’d love to be proved wrong over this, but it’s been a long time since the product was announced with little to no news or previews on it’s functions or ultimate availability.

    Please stop screwing around with peoples emotions and hopes and just get the thing properly documented and updated.
    Give us a reason to wait for your product over the new Minimed continuous testing device or stop wasting everyones time.
    I don’t wish to sound overly morbid, but our lives actually aren’t long enough to be toyed with as though we were being sold a new car.
    Please get it together.

    BD.
