About Afon Technology

Afon Technology has the single focus of commercialising a wearable, non-invasive blood glucose monitor to benefit people with diabetes the world over.

Based on proven and patented technology, it is a truly non-invasive, real-time and continuous glucose monitor that will empower people with diabetes in self-management and provide their clinicians with an in-depth history of their blood glucose variations.

With our device people with diabetes can lead an improved quality of life with freedom from the constraints of conventional finger-stick devices.

Our sensor is designed to be compatible with your chosen smart watch, phone or tablet. It communicates via Bluetooth and the companion app will record your blood glucose trends and alert you to high/low glucose levels.

We have a world-class team working on this solution and our recent trials have got us all really excited. We are planning on bringing the device to you very soon.

About Diabetes

Diabetes is recognised as a global epidemic, at the epicentre of a worldwide healthcare crisis with the International Diabetes Federation reporting that an estimated 415 million adults were living with the disease in 2015. There is no cure for diabetes.

Diabetes is a condition where the amount of glucose in a sufferer’s blood is too high because their body cannot use it properly. This is because their pancreas doesn’t produce any insulin, or not enough insulin to help glucose enter the body’s cells – or the insulin does not work properly (known as insulin resistance).

There are two main types of diabetes – Type 1 and Type 2. Both types are serious, lifelong conditions with devastating complications.

For more information on diabetes and how to best manage it contact your national diabetes charity Diabetes UK.
