This monitor can detect the symptoms of hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar in diabetics).
It is a self contained device that incorporates two sensors located on the rear of the product, which is designed similar to a wrist watch.
These sensors, when in contact with the skin of the wrist or ankle, respond to perspiratiojn and body temperature (cold sweats) which are two common symptoms of low blood sugar.
If a cold sweat is detected, a built in vibrator operates along with a tone beeper alarm. The persistent vibration from the alarm is sufficient to disturb most users from sleep, enabling a blood test and remedial action to be taken quickly.
This alarm is for use when sleeping - it is not intended to be used as a day time alarm.
When used in accordance with the instruction guide, it can detect early symptoms of hypoglycaemia and thereby helps to reduce the likelihood of more serious health complications.
The device has a comfortable adjustable elastic strap that exerts sufficient pressure to hold the sensors firmly against the skin.
The outer case is manufactured from a durable ABS material that is durable and long lasting.
The only ongoing maintenance required is to replace the lithium 3V battery - which is likely to be required a couple of times a year. There is a low battery warning tone to advise of battery replacement requirement.
Operation of the alarm is very simple and it provides confirmation beeps for button operation, so is also usable by those who may be sight impaired.
By keeping a record of night time alarms, the data can be used in conjunction with the user's GP, to adjust insulin as required.
The alarm is lightweight too only weighing 17g.
Certified in accordance with the medical directive 93/42/EEC.
Case size - width 34 x height 54 x depth 14.61mm (1.25 x 2 x 0.5").
