“Improving Diabetic HEALTH Through INNOVATION”
An Improvement with Advancement
Unlike existing continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) companies that use chemical reactions to measure glucose, Alertgy is patenting dielectric spectroscopy as a way to measure blood glucose levels up to 3 times a minute, without needles, patches, discomfort, and constant fear. The ﬁnal product will be in the form of a wristband, wearable device the size of a women’s iWatch.
Current CGMs use patch sensors that are attached to/and puncture the skin to measure glucose just under the skin. Because of the skin barrier and the time of glucose molecule travel to the readings are delayed, and leading to what is called “interstitial lag.” Conversely, Alertgy’s radio frequency wave tech measures glucose in the actual blood, real time.
Thriving with Young Talents
Alertgy is an SMB, integrated across multiple locations and 100% entrepreneurial in everything it does from technology innovation, business development, and critical thinking. The company is attracting world-class engineering talent whose ability to think of out the box has allowed it to grow signiﬁcantly over the last 3 years and break new barriers.
Additionally, the advisory and directors board is made up of industry leaders with expertise in engineering, technology, materials, military, healthcare, business, law, ethics, and medicine.
Alertgy believes in ’paying it forward’ and investing its resources in young local talent and supporting local businesses, such as its clinical partners on the Space Coast. During these challenging times it is working with NIH and other healthcare organizations on pivoting its technology to provide breakthrough solutions for maskcontained Covid 19 sensors.
Alex asserts “Our mission is to improve diabetes management for hundreds of millions of people worldwide.” He further added that while Type 1 diabetes is life threatening, the real danger lies with Type 2 diabetics and pre-diabetics, who often fail to heed the signs. These groups represent 95% of the diabetic population worldwide, growing by millions each month. By allowing them to monitor their glucose levels easily and painlessly, Alertgy hopes to improve their quality of life.
In addition, the company is funding a grant with Florida Atlantic University to research and develop Covid 19 monitoring and tracking technology, using common masks. Just like with diabetes, our goal is to provide an easily manageable solution for Covid 19 tracing and contact management.
