The TGM opportunity

Non-invasive can be a transformative technology for tens or hundreds of millions. Needles and the fear of having to draw blood from oneself can be a major hurdle faced by people who want to understand their glucose levels.1  RSP Systems has developed a patented, clinically tested, non-invasive and non-intrusive glucose monitoring technology system that has the potential to be a game changer.

Note: The GlucoBeam touch glucose monitoring technology system is an investigations system not yet FDA cleared for commercial sale or use.  Any subsequent variants of the technology or alterations to the base technology could require additional clearance or approval (510K, De Novo or PMA), depending on alterations to the base technology and desired claims or intended use.

Market potential for touch glucose monitoring

The market for a willingly accepted technology to manage health is enormous.

The applicability of non-invasive technology is massive, covering those who are on a path to disease and want to start monitoring, as well as those who desire to optimize or simply know the state of their health. The GlucoBeam technology system offers a means for people to know the effect of different foods, exercise, stress, and other factors on their  glucose levels – without the penalty of invasive measurement.

In the US alone, 70% of all adults are overweight or obese. Globally, more than 1.9 billion adults worldwide were overweight in 2016, including 650 million obese. The World Health Organization estimates that obesity tripled worldwide between 1975 and 2016. Obesity across the world shows the wide-reaching opportunity for touch glucose monitoring.

The link between obesity and other diseases is undeniable. Monitoring technologies that require a doctor’s visit and doctor’s prescription leave a vast gap in accessibility, meaning that huge volumes of people have no idea of the effect of different foods, exercise, stress, etc. on their glucose levels.

Technologies designed for consumer use at home or in an everyday environment are also much more likely to gain acceptance and usage – a key opportunity.

Potential user acceptance of TGM technology

0%

RSP’s initial research shows possible user acceptance of monitoring glucose via non-invasive technology. RSP conducted an internal survey to gauge potential acceptance. Among people with prediabetes or who were at risk for diabetes, 90% indicated positively to consideration of monitoring at home with non-invasive touch glucose monitoring.1

1 Data based on a survey of 961 people (607 in the US and 354 in Europe), conducted in 2020 by a third party.

Potential applications

Potential applications of touch glucose monitoring can include consumer products, metabolic health, health & wellness, weight loss, and others based on technical or commercial partner targets, including those of interest to investors. Our future roadmap for technology iteration includes leveraging user data and advanced software to increase the technology’s performance, extending the applicability to larger populations, as well as an aggressive path to technology miniaturization.

All potential new variations of the technology may require additional clearance or approval. RSP’s R&D team is able to provide expertise to partners toward that achievement.

Clinical investigations

The value of a health technology is limited until clinically proven to be as safe and effective for use on humans. A sequence of trials must be conducted on the intended user population before being cleared and becoming eligible for sale. To work toward meeting these regulations, RSP has pursued research & development through a series of studies, testing and clinical trials over a decade.

The technology system has yielded clinical, technical and user acceptance outcomes that will support future use. Our clinical assets include a total of more than 700 people tested in more than 15 investigations in Europe, including our ongoing investigation.

RSP has participated in scientific conferences and presented scientific posters/abstracts at ATTD, DT, DTM and ADA. Our current clinical plan focuses on a consumer application of the technology.
