Project Summary Project Information

Glucose Guardians

The goal of this multidisciplinary project is to create an improved continuous glucose monitoring device that will be highly responsive and helpful, primarily to those suffering from diabetes.

Diabetes is a disease that affects almost 10 percent of the United States population, in addition to many more patients worldwide. Patients suffering from either of the two primary forms of the disease (Type I & Type II) must carefully monitor their blood glucose levels to avoid adverse health outcomes that can occur not only in instances when levels are too low (hypoglycemia), but also when levels are excessively high (hyperglycemia).

Continuous glucose monitoring devices aim to enhance a patient's ability to monitor their condition without the need for regular blood-based readings.

Our team goal is to produce a sensor and smartphone application that work together to improve the patient's ability to manage their condition and lead a freer, more fulfilling life.
