Study title: Clinical Assessment of a Novel Microprobe Array Continuous Glucose Monitor for Type 1 Diabetes.

Invitation to participate in diabetes technology research

We have developed a new device to help people with Type 1 diabetes to monitor their glucose level continuously, accurately and more conveniently. The new device consists of a small wearable patch containing several microscopic spikes (each less than 1/100th of an inch).

This is how the patch looks under microscope. This shows the microscopic spikes that painlessly go into the outermost skin layer to monitor glucose.

What does it involve?

This involves two visits to the research unit at Hammersmith Hospital to assess the new device. Each visit will be for six hours to wear the device and have blood tests. At the end of the second visit, volunteers will keep the device attached for the remaining 18 hours (total of 24 hours) before returning back to the research unit to get the device removed.

Can I help?

You are eligible to participate if you are:

1- older than 18 year old

2- do not suffer from diabetes

3- do not suffer from skin disease
