Cheap, disposable, tiny, adhesive glucose monitor

Google Life Sciences ha partnered with DexCom to develop cheap, miniaturized, disposable, bandaid-like continuous glucose sensors.

The devices will incorporate Google’s miniaturized electronics platform with DexCom’s sensors.   The goal is to shrink DexCom’s current monitor, giving patients a less obtrusive way to monitor their condition in real time.

Alphabet has announced that Google Life Sciences, Google X and Google Ventures will all increase their healthcare related initiatives.
