GlucoWatch (R) G2 (TM): a watch designed primarily for children with Type I diabetes to continuously monitor glucose levels

Mundy, L, Merlin, T
Record ID 32006000593
Authors' results and conclusions: Level II evidence indicates that GlucoWatch may be a useful adjunct in the monitoring of glucose levels, especially in younger children with poor glucose control. However, it is unclear whether the increased detection of hypoglycaemia with GlucoWatch is due to the GlucoWatch alarm or to the possible increased vigilance of parents/children. GlucoWatch is not a replacement for conventional blood glucose monitoring.
Authors' recommendations: HealthPACT recommends that a Horizon Scanning report be conducted.
