Quantum Operation Inc., a Tokyo-based healthcare IoT startup, will present the world's first noninvasive glucometer in the form of a wristband that is capable of nonstop monitoring. The device, which uses the company's patented spectrum sensing technology to accurately measure glucose in a person's bloodstream through the skin, eliminates the need -- and pain -- of daily needle use for diabetic patients. The company is also adding a new function to the device to monitor changes in pre- and post-meal blood glucose levels -- an important indicator for diabetic patients to keep track of to prevent progression of the disease.

Quantum Operation's technology won a CES 2022 Innovation Award in the ”Health & Wellness” category.

”Although checking one's blood glucose level both before and after a meal is important, that adds to patients' already taxing daily routine of sticking a needle into their fingers or arms so many times a day. We are thrilled to be able to make this all pain-free and effortless for them,” Quantum Operation CEO Kazuma Kato said. “Diabetes affect 463 million people worldwide, causing 1.5 million deaths from it each year. We are thrilled to demonstrate at CES 2022 how our technology can revolutionize the patients' daily disease management.”

CES Unveiled -- Jan. 3 -- Mandalay Bay L2 (booth #608)
CES 2022 -- Jan. 5-8 -- J-Startup Pavilion, Eureka Park (booth #62102)
Showstoppers -- Jan. 5 -- Wynn Las Vegas, Cristal Ballroom (booth TBD)

The noninvasive 24/7 monitoring is made possible by Quantum Operation's core technologies that include the novel spectrometer materials -- one of which is designed to emit an optimal spectrum, and another that is highly responsive to target spectra -- as well as the innovative firmware that efficiently extract targeted data by canceling noise. These technologies can be used to measure all types of vital signs, ranging from heart rate to oxygen saturation (SPO2). The technologies enable healthcare businesses to compile accurate big data and provide better solutions for disease control and management.
