gPod Sensor Module

gPod for In-Hospital Diagnostics using the g-Pod sensor module

g-Pod addresses the primary issue of clinical blood glucose monitoring by providing a single instrument capable of monitoring a full floor of patients while eliminating the pathways of cross contamination that are a significant infection hazard to patients and staff alike.

The system will useM2M based wireless communication between “Smart Sensors” based on LS technology and remotely held meters that do not come in patient contact. The g-Pod device will track to individual electronic patient records at both the nurses’ station and the roving meter to prevent mismatch of glucose readings and patient IDs. The cost of the more expensive Smart Sensor will be offset by eliminating the intensive labor associated with rising use of strip sensor based SBGM’s as blood glucose testing becomes increasingly a stand-alone assay distinct from the expensive lab blood panels.
