SUKALICARE TEAM 2023
Sukali Care kit ( Non Invasive Continuous Glucose Monitor, Insulin Pump and mobile application). The non-invasive continuous glucose monitor(CGM) will be in the form of a bracelet that uses infrared light(painless) to take a blood glucose reading without the need of drawing a blood sample. This bracelet will take a reading after every five minutes and in high blood glucose levels will prompt the insulin pump, a device that will be worn around the belt with a cannula going under the skin (covered by a patch) through which a dose of insulin in the amount required will be administered to return blood glucose levels to normal. In states of low blood glucose, it will alarm the patient via the Sukali app to take action so as to raise the sugar in one’s blood. The Sukali app will also store all the readings to be used by the doctor during the patients hospital visit.
This team is led by a young innovator, Julius Kyomya a clinical pharmacy post graduate student at Mbarara University of Science and Technology.
