The HSA-01 can detect the symptoms of Hypoglycaemia, low blood sugar in diabetic people.
The HSA-01 is a self contained device that incorporates two sensors located on the rear of the product, styled like a wristwatch. The sensors, when in contact with the skin of the wrist or ankle respond to perspiration and body temperature (cold sweats), two common symptoms of low blood sugar. If a cold sweat is detected, a built in vibrator operates along with a tone beeper alarm. The persistent vibration from the alarm is sufficient to disturb most users from sleep enabling a blood test and remedial action to be taken. The HSA-01 is for use when sleeping, it is not designed or intended to be used as a daytime alarm. When used in accordance with the instruction guide, the HSA-01 can detect early symptoms of hypoglycaemia and reduce the likelihood of more serious complications. The monitor has a comfortable adjustable elastic strap that exerts sufficient pressure to hold the sensors firmly against the skin. The product case is manufactured from a durable ABS material that will provide years of service life. The only on-going costs to maintain the product is periodic replacement of the lithium 3V battery, probably twice a year. Operation of the product is very strait forward and with confirmation beeps for button operation, is also usable by sight impaired people. By keeping a record of night time alarms, the data can be used to adjust insulin doses to prevent nocturnal hypo’s. Weighs only 17g. Battery, 3V Lithium CR2032. Alarm, piezo buzzer and vibration.
