Abstract

Diabetes Mellitus is a lifelong condition associated with the inability of the pancreas to produce enough insulin for the body. The World Health Organization estimates that 422 million people globally suffer from diabetes. Numerous methods are available to monitor this condition. However, none of them provides completely autonomous test results. This paper studies needle optimization for an autonomous blood glucose monitoring system known as the Electronic Mosquito, designed to replace standard fingerprick-based testing. The aim is to maximize blood volume collection and to facilitate more reliable glucose level readings while preserving the autonomous nature of the device. Pilot human testing is reported and discussed.
