For carers and clients
The HypoMon is safe, rigorously tested and easy to use
The HypoMon alerts users or carers to more night-time hypoglycaemia (hypo's) than any other continuous monitoring systems currently available.
The HypoMon identifies night-time hypo's in children and young adults aged between 10 and 25 years old, with type 1 diabetes.
Research shows that nearly 55% of severe hypo's in children and adolescents occur at night.
Thanks to HypoMon, correctly identifying night-time hypo's can be simple and stress free.
The HypoMon correctly identifies 8 out of 10 night-time hypo's.
Findings from product trials confirm that the HypoMon alarm system correctly identifies and triggers an alarm for 8 out of 10 night-time hypo's.
The HypoMon has undergone rigorous clinical trials at a leading Australian Children's Hospital. These trials showed that the simple and easy-to-use HypoMon accurately alerts users or carers to more night-time hypoglycaemia events than any other continuous monitoring systems currently available.
What are the dangers of undetected night-time hypo's?
Undetected night-time hypoglycaemia; when blood glucose levels drop below 3.8mmol/L (68.4mg/dL), can result in decreased hypoglycaemia awareness for people with type 1 diabetes. If untreated it can also lead to increased risk of hospitalisation or coma.
Night-time hypoglycemia is associated with deterioration in glycemic control in people with type 1 diabetes and is a possible cause of unexplained morning hyperglycemia.
How HypoMon works
1. The comfortable wrap-around Belt with Sensor and Transmitter senses the user's heart patterns.
2. Wireless technology transmits information from the Transmitter to the Monitor; which can be placed within a 10-metre radius.
3. When a hypoglycaemic stress response is detected the HypoMon alarms at the Transmitter and the Monitor, waking the user and/or carer.
HypoMon assures a safer, more comfortable night’s sleep for all.
