New diabetes device monitors blood using radar and AI, not painful pricks

About the same size as existing glucometers, the rectangular device works by sending radio waves through the skin and into blood vessels when users place the tip of their finger on a touchpad.

“Our safe, reusable, pain-free device would eliminate the need for implanted sensors, patches or devices that use chemical reactions or fluid transfer through the skin,” Ala Eldin Omer, an engineering PhD student who led the project said

Professor Safieddin (Ali) Safavi-Naeini said the science at the heart of the diabetes device potentially has several additional applications.
