About us

SmartSensor telemed is dedicated to the development of tests to prevent diabetes and cardiovascular disease and reduce the serious consequences of these conditions.

The company's unique wireless diagnostics platform combines with e-health and telemedicine to enable new services to help patients and healthcare providers work together.

The first product developed is a unique Home OGTT test kit that allows patients to perform a full oral glucose tolerance test procedure conveniently at home, with the test results viewable confidentially for the healthcare professional to interpret.

Commonly recommended tests for diabetes

Oral Glucose Tolerance Test

OGTT is generally referred to as the gold standard test for all forms of diabetes. It is the most sensitive and specific test for glucose intolerance, the only test recommended for gestational diabetes and the preferred test for diabetes in certain medical settings, including cystic fibrosis and organ transplantation.

OGTT measures the body's ability to use glucose, the body's main source of energy. Diabetes impairs the body’s ability to correctly use sugar, leading to glucose intolerance.

Following an overnight fast, glucose levels are measured before and after consumption of a drink containing glucose.

Home OGTT

At the heart of the Home OGTT kit is SmartSensor's unique electronic test device

The SmartSensor telemed Home OGTT test kit contains everything needed to perform an OGTT procedure without training and with no need for additional equipment.

The kit is provided in conjunction with a glucose load, typically a drink containing 75g of glucose.

The test kit is intended to be used by patients at home but it can also be also used in a non-clinical community setting with the oversight of a trained nurse or assistant. In trials the Home OGTT kit has proven very easy to use, with high approval ratings.
