AerNos Inc., a San Diego, CA-based company that specializes in smart air sensing devices, announced that its nano gas sensors will be incorporated into a new wearable alert device that will detect certain exhaled gases indicative of hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic episodes in people with diabetes.
Called AerBetic, the device uses a non-invasive, always-on alert system, which may enhance the quality of life of the more than 460 million people worldwide diagnosed with diabetes. AerBetic will be demonstrated during CES 2019 in AerNos booth 42349, Sands Expo, January 8 – 11 in Las Vegas, says a press release.
Initially, AerBetic will come in the forms of bracelets and pendants. The sensors detect target gases, indicative of blood glucose levels, at parts-per-billion levels. The device connects to smart phones and smart home devices via Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi. Alerts are displayed on a mobile app, along with periodic reminders to check blood glucose levels. The app can also notify caregivers of patient status and will relay sensor and diagnostic information to a cloud-based data warehouse. AerBetic uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to continuously improve the performance of the sensors and fine-tune each unit to the individual patient.
“Until now, there has not been a compact, affordable sensor technology that could sense these gases in the breath,” said Sundip Doshi, founder and CEO, AerNos. “Leveraging our research and development of air quality sensors, we’ve designed a sensor that enables AerBetic to develop this diabetic alert solution that has the potential of positively impacting the millions of people living with diabetes.”
