Know Labs Announces the KnowU, its Wearable Non-Invasive Continuous Glucose Monitor

What To Know

  • The KnowU exploits the dielectric properties of glucose, a polar molecule in the body, including its ability to store electrical energy in an electrical field (known as permittivity) as measured through a voltage reading received after broadcasting each frequency.
  • The KnowU can be worn with an adhesive, allowing the user to clip the sensor on and off, or on the wrist or forearm with a strap.

KnowU

Know Labs, Inc. (NYSE American: KNW), an emerging developer of non-invasive medical diagnostic technology, today announced the KnowU™, its wearable non-invasive continuous glucose monitor (CGM). The Company announced its first prototype in June 2023. The KnowU is the result of an accelerated development process over the last eight months.

The KnowU incorporates the sensor that the Company plans to submit to the FDA for clearance. This proprietary sensor has been tested and proven stable and accurate in the lab setting. It was included in the Company’s prototype to validate stability outside of the lab, and is now miniaturized and wearable.

KnowU Can Be Worn with An Adhesive

The KnowU can be worn with an adhesive, allowing the user to clip the sensor on and off, or on the wrist or forearm with a strap. The device, which is significantly smaller and lighter than the prototype, includes on-board computing power and built-in machine learning capabilities. The KnowU is designed to optimize the customer experience – expected to last for years, eliminate costly disposables, have a rechargeable battery, and connect with an easy-to-use companion mobile app. Click here to watch a video for more insight into specific KnowU features.

The KnowU brings Know Labs closer to delivering the world’s first non-invasive blood glucose monitor to the global marketplace. As the Company prepares for FDA clinical trials, the KnowU device will support accelerated data collection, including determining the technology’s performance throughout continuous wear, on different locations on the body, and within more expansive glycemic ranges and diverse populations.

Diabetes

“The prevalence of diabetes is growing globally at an alarming rate. Millions of people face significant barriers in accessing the technology and treatment they need to effectively manage their diabetes,” said Ron Erickson, CEO and Chairman at Know Labs. “Know Labs is committed to delivering an accessible, affordable, and accurate solution that improves the current standard of care and enhances the quality of life for those living with diabetes. The KnowU brings us closer to a future where equitable care in diabetes management will become a reality.”

The KnowU is built upon the solid scientific foundation underlying Know Labs’ technology. Its proprietary radiofrequency (RF) sensor measures glucose levels using dielectric spectroscopy by rapidly scanning a large range of RF frequencies. It records voltage values detected at each frequency to quantify, with trade-secret machine learning algorithms, real-time continuous blood glucose levels. The KnowU exploits the dielectric properties of glucose, a polar molecule in the body, including its ability to store electrical energy in an electrical field (known as permittivity) as measured through a voltage reading received after broadcasting each frequency. As the leading worldwide IP holder in non-invasive blood glucose monitoring with more than 270 patents issued, pending and in process, Know Labs has created a defensible moat surrounding its technology.

During 2024, Know Labs will deploy the KnowU in large-scale, external clinical trials while making refinements to the device and its algorithms. To learn more about the development process for the KnowU, visit https://www.knowlabs.co.
