“The single most important reason for low testing frequency of diabetics is the pain associated with finger-stick testing and the repeated trauma to fingers. Ease of use is also an area of focus, including reduction in the number of steps necessary to take a reading”, Frost & Sullivan Report, 2007.
Portable glucose meters are the most widely used diabetes diagnostic and self-monitoring products in the market. Despite the availability of these devices, less than 2/3 of patients test their glucose daily. This poor compliance indicates a compelling need for additional features to streamline the testing process and avoid the debilitating long-term complications of diabetes. In particular, a device that simplifies the testing process and that reduces or eliminates the pain of puncturing the skin to draw blood would have significant potential to occupy a market niche.
