As far as ADA news goes, a few of you already asked me about progress on the Glucoband, a non-invasive armband-style continuous monitor being developed by Calisto Medical (i.e. sort of a Glucowatch redux but better). Well, it seems the company has already "released some positive pre-clinical results," meaning early testing went well. And they'll be introducing a new prototype at the ADA Conference this coming weekend, Medgadget reports.
I can't wait to have a look -- although last year Calisto's tiny booth was so crowded you practically had to take a number and then sharpen your elbows. And (big "and") usually products not yet approved by the FDA can only be shown under protective plastic. I kid you not. But I'll be standing in line to take a look nonetheless.
