Would be a boon for insulin-dependent diabetics. I didn't find a cost on their website.

Key facts:

- Initial market launch in Europe expected at the end of 2016

- Real-time healthcare monitoring from the comfort of the users' home, workplace etc

- App can be connected via the cloud to virtual GP / healthcare professionals for treatment interventions

- 24 hour continuous use per patch

- Requires finger-prick test for calibration, only when new patch is used (my edit: which is once per day)

- Device lifespan estimate: two years

I heard rumors from Dexcom as well that in the next 2 years, they will have CGM devices that sound a lot like this one as well. Very cool though looks like we'll have to wait a while before either comes to the US market.

As for price, I bet they will be similar to what people pay now. I was just looking into the Dexcom G5. The monitor is $700 and each sensor (lasting 1 week) is about $80.

Sounds like it will only be as accurate as your meter is, hopefully it is more consistent than most meters and user habits.

How accurate are the CGMs we have now I wonder?

From what I have read, sensors have to be calibrated at least twice a day. So the first day with a sensor, it is going to be less accurate than say the 7th day with your old sensor, which at this point has at least 14 calibration points. To calibrate, you have to do a finger stick and then tell the CGM what your BG is.

Just a guess but from measurement to measurement, I assume that a CGM is more consistent, but not more accurate. As we know, part of a meter's inconsistency is that we don't always take the same size drop, etc. But since it's being calibrated against your meter, it's only as accurate as the meter.
