Flore is the first wearable device for diabetics that integrates biometrics to alleviate the stress of managing the disease. It's a small wearable device that all diabetics can use everyday to check their glucose levels, get motivated to exercise, get alerted when it's time to see your provider, get advice on healthy eating and life changing habits and most importantly - live a normal life with diabetes. This device consolidates each individual action that a current diabetic goes through on a daily basis and puts it into one device. They can carry it as a stand alone device, or they can clip it on with the optional silicone sleeve jacket.
Flore is a communicator with your provider, sending all of your updated data and information live 24/7. It also communicates with your loved ones for up to date data on your health and status. In case your glucose level is dangerously low or high, it would notify emergency personnel. The breakthrough feature is this: it prevents any type of discomfort and painful pricking of the finger to check glucose levels. The back of the device has a finger scanner that uses near infrared spectroscopy technology to scan your blood without having to prick your finger to draw blood. Flore is here to help you live a normal healthy life.
Good research and correct deployment of sensor technologies to develop a product that could be transformational for diabetics.
