Project Title

Mobile technology for non-invasive blood glucose monitoring: Design and Development

Academic department under which the project should be listed

CCSE - Information Technology

Faculty Sponsor Name

Maria Valero de Clemente

Abstract (300 words maximum)

Diabetes is one of the heath challenges that require lifestyle change and diet control. The usual practice is to use pricking needles and keep a manual record of blood-sugar levels. This method is becoming cumbersome and difficult to manage. The idea of having to prick fingers for every glucose reading poses a skin risk of infection especially in older adults. This project aims at solving these two major challenges- one, to develop a mobile application that can be easily connected to a non-invasive device for automatically recording blood sugar levels and, two, to help with simplifying this lifestyle changes by digitally keeping blood-sugar records and presenting them in a useful and analytical way to the user. This aims at better and simplified interpretation of blood-sugar readings that aids better decisions making and lifestyle adjustments.
