mela / Noninvasive blood glucose mete


mela is a noninvasive blood glucose meter, which makes measuring your blood glucose level a pleasant activity.
Stroking the marked surface heats the gel ring, which stimulates the production of tear fluid when placed on the eye. At the same time a UVC light cleans the internal sensor so that even the smallest particles are removed.
The warm gel ring is placed on the eye so measurement is taken.
The sensor measures the blood sugar level by screening the particles within the tear fluid. The result is shown on the display.
To turn off mela, the light, which shows the result of the measurement, is blown out.
