Quantum Operation’s Arab Health Exhibit to showcase the progress in world’s first noninvasive glucose monitor that follows chronological change in blood glucose after eating.
Health tech startup will also present a nonstop oxygen saturation (SpO2) monitoring wristband.
TOKYO (June. 15, 2021) – At Arab Health 2021 (June. 21-24, Dubai World Trade Centre), Quantum Operation Inc., a Tokyo-based healthcare IoT startup, will present the progress in their world’s first noninvasive glucose monitor. Quantum Operation will report its sensor’s accuracy by showing comparison data with SMBG before and after eating chocolate. As a result, in addition to the small difference in accuracy, they are able to prove that they could capture change in values for postprandial blood glucose. This is the first noninvasive glucose monitor which has shown this change in public in the world.
The company’s patented spectrum sensing technology enables the monitoring sensor to accurately measure glucose in a person’s bloodstream through the skin while being worn around their wrist. This monitor eliminates the need – and pain – of daily needle uses for diabetic patients and enables truly continuous measurement. During Arab Health 2021, Quantum Operation will also showcase its oxygen saturation measuring sensor (SpO2) that can be worn around the wrist.
The key to achieving this noninvasive 24/7 monitoring are Quantum Operation’s core technologies that include the novel spectrometer materials – one of which is designed to emit an optimal spectrum, and another that is highly responsive to target spectra – as well as the innovative firmware that efficiently extract targeted data by canceling noise. These technologies can be used to measure all types of vital signs, ranging from heart rate to electrocardiography (ECG).
“After announcement at CES 2021, our sensor received a very strong response from all over the world. In particular, many diabetic patients asked us to produce this sensor as soon as possible, and we strongly felt the social significance of this product once again,” said Quantum Operation CEO Kazuma Kato. “Our goal is to improve the lives of diabetics who have to endure daily needle sticks and pain, and we will continue to make progress toward that goal. We are very excited to share our sensing technology and disease management solutions with the world through Arab Health 2021.”
