Discipline: Professional Concept

While continuous glucose monitors (CGM) succeed in minimizing hassle with up to 14 days of continuous monitoring compared to traditional fingerpricking, its applicator is still a chore to set up and can easily misfire. Gluco-Ball is the most convenient CGM to date with zero assembly in one easy to grip, unibody design. It features a foolproof lock that prevents all unintentional misfires, allowing the user to simply twist the device counter-clockwise to unlock mechanism to release a prick at the desired location. The non-slip rubber top in a coarse helix grain is easy to grip while administering, and the user enjoys 2 weeks of carefree glucose monitoring.
