No need for weekly sensor insertions.
Unlike ordinary glucose sensors, the Eversense Sensor is professionally implanted, subcutaneously, in the upper arm. No part of the sensor sticks through the skin surface.
Encased in a biocompatible material, the sensor uses fluorescence-based technology to measure glucose in the interstitial fluid that reversibly binds to the glucose-indicating polymer. The measurement and display of glucose values are both done automatically, without the need for user intervention.
