Flore is the first wearable device for diabetics that integrates biometrics to help alleviate the stress of managing the disease. The small device serves not only as a glucometer, but also as a motivation to make healthier choices in nutrition and physical activity. It consolidates each individual action that a diabetic performs on a daily basis into one device to help live normal life despite the disease. It can be worn as a stand-alone unit or as a clip with the optional silicone sleeve jacket. It also serves as a tele-communicator with the patient’s provider, sending updated health data on a regular basis for consistent and constant monitoring. It also has the capability to communicate your health status to your loved ones. In the event of a dangerously high or low glucose level, Flore would notify emergency personnel.
The breakthrough feature that sets Flore apart from other diabetic devices is that it prevents any type of discomfort associated with painful pricking of the finger to draw blood. The back of the device is equipped with a finger scanner that uses near infrared spectroscopy technology to detect blood glucose level. It eliminates the need to carry lancets, draw blood, and connect an external testing strip to the device. Flore helps manage diabetes in the least obstructive way, and allows individuals to live the most normal life possible.
