The Diabetes Sentry
Introducing the industry-unique device designed to detect the two major symptoms of hypoglycemia, an increase in perspiration and/or a decrease in skin temperature.
The Diabetes Sentry is an FDA approved Class 3 medical device.
The Diabetes Sentry addresses a critical gap in solutions available to diabetics to assist with achieving and maintaining improved glucose control. The device provides an audible alarm when detection of either or both of the two symptoms of hypoglycemia is present: 1. Perspiration 2. Drop in temperature.
The Diabetes Sentry is worn like a wristwatch. It weighs only 1.5 ounces (50 grams) and is easily secured to the wrist with a Velcro strap integrated into a case made of lightweight yet durable biocompatible plastic.
The device is powered by three commonly available type 357 button cell batteries, which last up to six months with normal usage. Operation of the device is simple and straightforward enabling persons of all ages to gain the benefits of the Diabetes Sentry. One press of the ON/OFF button activates the device which is confirmed with 4 quick audible beeps. When the Diabetes Sentry detects perspiration and/or temperature drop, an alarm sounds.
Ease of use is a significant aspect of the Diabetes Sentry. Many medical products in the diabetes category require lengthy and often times confusing instructions to properly utilize the device. Difficult operation and troubleshooting limits a products appeal and adoption. The Diabetes Sentry can be easily initiated and operated by virtually anyone without time-consuming instruction.
The Diabetes Sentry is $495 US. No additional disposable costs negatively impact the purchase decision process, which is common with many products in the diabetes category. The Diabetes Sentry is unique, cost effective, easy to use and fills an important void in available solutions to physicians, diabetes educators and individuals with diabetes.
