Diabetes Fonds and Sensible join forces for affordable glucose sensors

Sensible Healthcare Systems, based in the YES!Delft tech incubator, announces a collaboration with the Dutch Diabetes Fonds. The collaboration will focus on amplifying research with patients to improve and verify performance, and optimize ease of use of their first product.

The partnership aims to further involve users in the validation of Sensible’s Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) sensor called idi one. The involvement extends from usability testing to clinical studies. The potential for improvement in the CGM market is greatest since both established and emerging CGM sensors have fundamental limitations that prevent users from utilizing them to their full potential.

Sensible’s mission is to revolutionize the world of personalized healthcare by making continuous biosensors such as CGMs an order of magnitude more affordable. Moreover, they aim to make these sensors usable and imperceptible for everyone. The team is committed to developing highly scalable and cost-effective biosensors without sacrificing accuracy and consistency.

The sensors are unique in their design, utilizing a single microneedle that is 40 times smaller than those used in current market sensors. Additionally, Sensible embraces an open data architecture, allowing users to seamlessly integrate our sensor with any treatment option they choose at no extra cost.

“The involvement of Diabetes Fonds is a great honor for us and will significantly enhance both the quality of our innovation and the likelihood of successful market implementation.” says Tim Bruines on behalf of the Sensible team.
