4. Abbott Freestyle Libre
No more finger pricking! This brand new blood sugar meter launched in select European countries by Abbott is, what they call, a flash glucose monitor. A blood glucose monitor, but one that truely involves no finger pricks, not even to calibrate it. Pretty amazing.
Our CEO John has been using it for the last few weeks and from his own use, gives it a big thumbs up.
5. Timesulin – Smart cap for your insulin pen(s)
For those of you who have not heard about us before. Timesulin tells you how long since your last injection. Timesulin was created in 2012 by our CEO John Sjölund. He lives a busy and active life as a Type-1. John often had to think about “Did I take my injection or not?” This problem led to the creation of a automatic timer for your insulin pen known as Timesulin. Timesulin is a replacement cap that tells you how long since your last injectin. No more missed or double injections. Learn More
