USING THE BRAIN IN THE PREVENTION OF SEVERE HYPOGLYCAEMIA?

Hyposafe SubQ is a project dedicated to the prevention of severe hypoglycemia. The human brain, which lives primarily on glucose, begins to demonstrate recognizable electric patterns approximately 20 minutes before hypoglycemia.
 
By continuous measurement of the electrical activity within the brain, hypoglycemia can be detected, and people with diabetes alerted before the situation becomes critical.
 
When alerted, the patient can take the necessary action required to avoid hypoglycemia from occurring and thereafter adjust his/her glucose level to the appropriate interval.

WE WANT TO PROVIDE A GENUINE PROTECTION
AGAINST SEVERE HYPOGLYCAEMIA

PROJECT OBJECTIVE 1:
ENSURING DETECTION OF HYPOGLYCAEMIC EVENTS


This is possible due to the fact that the brain always emits a characteristic and recognizable EEG pattern, prior to the onset of hypoglycemia. This means that the user can feel secure that the device will alert before hypoglycemia arrives.

PROJECT OBJECTIVE 2:
PROVIDE ALARMS IN TIME TO REACT


Our testing has demonstrated that by measuring EEG, hypoglycemia can be detected 10-20 minutes before the cognitive state starts to deteriorate. Receiving this warning gives the patient time to take positive steps to avoid hypoglycemia.

PROJECT OBJECTIVE 3:
NOT TO STRESS THE USER WITH
FALSE POSITIVE ALERTS


The EEG measurement principle is very robust with respect to source of external interference, which creates an optimal signal for interpretation. Furthermore, the mathematical model used in the analysis is strong enough to ensure that we avoidance incorrect conclusions. This means that the user is not unnecessarily stressed by false positive alerts.
