Know Labs Posts Accuracy Data Comparing its Non-Invasive Glucose Monitor to Hospital Meters


Just days after unveiling the finalized design of its needle-free blood sugar monitor, Know Labs is delivering some data to back up its approach. The KnowU device is designed to one day be fitted onto the skin as an adhesive patch or simply worn on the wrist, with sensors that use radio waves to gauge the body’s glucose levels.

This past week at the International Conference on Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes in Florence, Italy, the company put forward initial clinical data in tracking blood sugar levels among people with prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes. 

Know Labs found its noninvasive system achieved an overall mean absolute relative difference of 11.1% when compared to blood samples drawn from a vein. Also referred to as MARD, the common measure of wearable continuous glucose monitors compares their accuracy to a standard approach.
