SAN DIEGO, Jan. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- AerNos, Inc. today announced that its nanotechnology based gas sensors will be incorporated in a new wearable alert device that will detect certain exhaled gases indicative of hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic diabetic episodes. Using a non-invasive, always-on alert system, AerBetic will enable a higher quality of life for the more than 460 million people worldwide diagnosed with diabetes. AerBetic will be demonstrated during CES 2019 in AerNos booth 42349, Sands Expo, January 8-11 in Las Vegas.
Initially, AerBetic will be designed as wearable bracelets and pendants. The sensors detect target gases, indicative of blood glucose levels, at parts-per-billion levels. AerBetic connects to smart phones and smart home devices via Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi. A mobile app displays alert notifications based on sensor readings, and sends periodic reminders to check blood glucose levels. The app can also notify caregivers of patient status and will relay sensor and diagnostic information to a cloud-based data warehouse. AerBetic will use machine learning and artificial intelligence to continuously improve the performance of the sensors and fine-tune each unit to the individual patient.
"Until now, there has not been a compact, affordable sensor technology that could sense these gases in the breath," said Sundip Doshi, founder and CEO, AerNos. "Leveraging our research and development of air quality sensors, we've designed a sensor that enables AerBetic to develop this diabetic alert solution that has the potential of positively impacting the millions of people living with diabetes."
"Many diabetics use specially trained dogs with a keen sense of smell to detect increases of Volatile Organic Compounds in the exhaled breath of their subjects with diabetes," said AerBetic CEO, Arnar Thors. "Together with AerNos we have developed a wearable solution that will detect these same gas patterns and thus enable a higher quality of life for diabetics worldwide."
