NIVA_B is a TROUT GmbH medical technology project on non-invasive determination of blood glucose. The NIVA_B objective is to provide an easy-to-use non-invasive blood glucose measurement system for continuous and pain-free detection of blood glucose values. The system is based on impedance spectroscopy and uses an artificial neural network to calculate the individual correlation between impedance values and blood glucose level. NIVA_B generates a glucose value every minute. A series of pre-clinical tests have shown very promising results. There is no need to take blood samples, except for a tiny drop for calibration, and this non-invasive approach reduces the risk of infection to a minimum. A patent was granted by the European Patent Office in 2014 - EP 2196140.
