Set diabetics free #Stoptheprick with the Alertgy NICGM
Alertgy has developed the first wearable truly non invasive continuous blood glucose monitor (NICGM) and alert system. 

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

In terms of its wearability non-invasiveness and low cost, the Alertgy NICGM  currently has no real direct competitor in the market.  The closest competitors are the Continues glucose glucose monitoring (CGM) companies such as Dexcom and Abbott they chemical reaction based sensors embedded under the patient’s skin, Google was trying to develop a contact lens sensor placed on the eye to achieve continuous monitoring which is also extremely invasive and on which they have recently given up. All of these are expensive to use. Optical and other skin chemistry methods are not practical for continuous monitoring and lack adequate selectivity and or sensitivity to meet FDA requirements. Over 90% of the world diabetic population use another very invasive manual systems from other existing non-direct competition that are the current manufacturers of prick and test strip glucometer systems referred to as self monitoring blood glucometers (SMBGs).
