AFFILIATION:   Florida International University, Miami, Florida, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Track: Medical & Biotech
Area: Advanced Material Platforms
Tech Readiness: TRL 5

Tech Brief: Insufficient ketogenesis can cause hypoglycemia and excessive production of ketones leads to a dangerous state ‘ketoacidosis’. Ketoacidosis is the most serious hyperglycemic emergency in patients with diabetes. Our technology can detect acetone noninvasively on the skin and to alert the user if their acetone level went over the physiological limits.

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Patients with type 1 and 2 diabetes and their physicians in National Defense can use our sensor platform for monitoring the state of ketoacidosis and get alerts in emergency conditions.
