Gluos / Glucose meter


The concept of Gluos is a infrared-glucose meter to measure the bloodsugarlevel without blood. You can remove the sensor from the mainframe to attach it to your earlobe for having perfect control in situations like car driving or sport. The glucose meter shows the results in a unobstrusive way by using a LED-dial for a fast and easy way to measure. The exact result is stored and transferred via Bluetooth to a mobile phone and a computer. Using the earlobe, the sensor measures continuously and gives a alarm in a critical situation.
