Quantum Operations

According to WHO, there are over 422 million people with diabetes around the world. Quantum Operations, a Japanese startup has created the first noninvasive glucose monitor that will eliminate the need of using daily a needle for most of them.

“Until now, sticking a need into your finger or arm has been the only available method for accurately measuring your glucose level. Our wristband will change that, making the painful daily routine unnecessary for all diabetic patients,” Said Quantum Operations CEO,  Kazuma Kato.

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. The same wristband and technology can be used to measure all types of vital signs, ranging from heart rate to electrocardiography (ECG).
