‘1Drop’ has developed an ultra-low-cost blood glucose measurement solution using LED and a smartphone camera. Through its unique technology, the company has created a paper-based blood glucose measurement strip and a device which helps patients to check their glucose in a simple way. The device can be carried as the back cover of a smartphone to provide convenience. The solution is expected to be utilized for other chronic diseases such as gout and high cholesterol in the near future.
The company is targeting the Indian market first considering that there is a high need for telemedicine due to the unbalance between the number of doctors and patients.
