TuDiabetes Live Interview with Avner Gal, developing GlucoTrack, a non-invasive glucose monitoring


GlucoTrack uses ultrasonic, electromagnetic and thermal technologies to non-invasively measure glucose levels in the blood. GlucoTrack is intended for use by Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics.

GlucoTrack model DF-F main features:

Uses three different technologies simultaneously to increase accuracy;
Reliable results;
Complete set of data for each reading (user’s name/date/time/glucose level);
Long term of calibration validity;
Provides spot measurements;
Visual and verbal glucose readings;
Main Unit supports up to three users;
Comparable to a smart phone in size and weight;
Up to 1000 recent readings per user;
Readings history data in tabular and graphic formats;
USB communication for easy data downloading for back-up storage and analysis;
User Friendly: easy to operate, easy to read data, large color touch screen;
Repeatable audible result;
Reduced life cycle cost (less expensive than finger prick device in long term).

The GlucoTrack Story:
The desire to develop a non-invasive blood glucose monitor came initially from Integrity co-founder, late Dr. David Freger. David had diabetes and like many who suffer from this life long debilitating disease, David was sick and tired of pricking his fingers to draw blood for glucose measurements a few times each day. Together with two of his trusted colleagues, Avner Gal and David Malka, they set out to develop a non-invasive blood glucose monitor that could provide pain-free measurements.

Following years of intense research and development they determined that the technical challenges of increasing the signal to noise ratio, to obtain a reliable reading without drawing blood, could best be achieved by combining three independent technologies simultaneously. They developed Integrity’s proprietary and patented approach of using ultrasound, electromagnetic and thermal measurements with a unique algorithm to weigh each measurement and calculate the weighted average of the three readings.
