ASHDOD, Israel, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrity Applications, Inc. (OTCQB: IGAP), maker of GlucoTrack®, a noninvasive device for measuring glucose levels of people with Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetics, announced that it is presenting this week at the 10th International Conference on Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD 2017) in Paris, France.
The company presented findings from research that demonstrate the precision and accuracy of the GlucoTrack Model DF-F non-invasive glucose monitoring device.
Non-Invasive Glucose Monitoring Device: Reducing Impact of Postprandial Lagging Effect During Measurement (A. Gal, A. Drexler et al., E-Poster #160, available from February 15th, 2017 and E-Poster Discussion Session, Exhibition Area, February 16, 2017, 10:10am)
- The latest generation GlucoTrack algorithm, which compensates for the tissue-lagging effect relative to blood glucose changes post-meal intake, significantly improves GlucoTrack accuracy at different post-prandial (post-meal) states, and equalizes accuracy for pre- and post-meal glucose readings.
- GlucoTrack clinical accuracy as measured by Consensus Error Grid (CEG) showed 100% of the pre-prandial readings in the A+B zones, and 98.2% of the post-prandial readings in the A+B zones.
Repeatability of a Non-Invasive Glucose Monitoring Device (A. Gal, A. Drexler et al., E-Poster #61, Exhibition Area, available from February 15th, 2017)
- GlucoTrack Model DF-F demonstrates consistent glucose measurement repeatability between different GlucoTrack devices and on each earlobe of the same subject.
- The repeatability of different GlucoTrack devices is similar at all tested glucose ranges and post-prandial time periods.
- The GlucoTrack mean precision absolute relative difference (PARD) of 8.2% is equivalent or better than the independently reported PARD values of commercially available continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGMs).
The 10th annual conference on Advanced Technologies and Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD) is expected to attract over 2,500 delegates from over the globe. The conference is attended by the world's leading researchers, clinical practitioners and industry/corporate professionals, and provides a forum for lively exchange of ideas and research relating to technologies, treatment and prevention of diabetes related illnesses.
GlucoTrack® is a non-invasive device that measures and displays an individual's glucose level in less than a minute without requiring a finger stick to draw blood.
GlucoTrack® features a small sensor that clips to the earlobe and measures the wearer's glucose level by taking measurements using three technologies. The measured signals are analyzed using a proprietary algorithm and displayed on a small handheld device the size of a mobile phone. The derived glucose measurement is also announced verbally, facilitating use by vision-impaired diabetes patients.
GlucoTrack® has received CE Mark and KFDA approvals for Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetics, and is currently being commercialized in Europe, South Korea and other geographical areas.
GlucoTrack® is expected to begin clinical trials for United States FDA approval in early 2017. The product is currently experimental in the United States and is limited to investigational use only.
