Glucose monitoring devices are necessary on a daily basis for the 100m severe diabetics. Their choice is limited: between affordable but highly painful Blood Glucose Monitoring tools, and costly / highly stigmatizing Continuous Glucose Monitoring devices, solutions are far from perfect. Besides these devices are limited, collecting a single set of data, glucose variation, ignoring the cause of changes.
K’Watch is a Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) system embedded in a Smartwatch. It is composed of two parts: K’apsul, a weekly patch that is adhesived to the skin, and the Watch. It measures glucose levels from glucose molecules in the interstitial fluid reacting with biochemicals on microneedles. The Watch interprets the signal returned by the patch, store and display the information, and can sync it to the cloud via an app. K’Watch unique architecture disrupt user experience, accuracy and payer ROI.
GOAL 3: GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
PKvitality ensures healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. 425 million people worldwide have diabetes, according to the International Diabete Federation. Thanks to their watch, people can track easily and discreetly their glucose levels throughout the day and night.
o Painless thanks to its microneedles less than 1mm that do not reach the pain nerves, and to its soft patch
o Convenient with glucose reading at a glance away
o Discreet as the CGM part is invisible, hidden below the watch; hyper and hypoglycaemia alerts are pushed to the patient via a subtle vibration
Accuracy revolution thanks to multiple patented innovations
Cost revolution: the number of consumable parts is divided by 5 vs traditional CGM, as K’Watch has no applicator and electronic components are moved from the patch to the watch.
Service revolution: embedded sensors (accelerometer, HR…) + glucose data + AI in the cloud enables PKvitality to provide the patient with a better understanding of its condition.
The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform is the perfect framework to access world-class tools like SIMULIA, ENOVIA and CATIA to accelerate and secure our MVP for our medical device solution.
The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform is an opportunity to have access to a unique collaborative ecosystem to co-develop our medical device and in particular to co-design a skin model to simulate the human skin from a mechanical and for a fluidic perspective saving precious time to certify our SkinTaste© sensor.
Nothing is impossible
We push the limits of every domain to find innovative and unexpected solutions. We shift the boundaries of the possible for the ultimate well-being of the end user.
Passion and Faith
We are driven by a common passion: create products and services that are both simple and pleasant to use. We believe in their immense potential for human beings.
Listening and caring are at the heart of our approach. In everyone’s speech there is something unique. We strive to find this treasure in every interaction.
With studies estimating the annual number of deaths due to medical errors in the hundreds of thousands, the time has come to revise the way the medical profession gains knowledge and experience. Advances in 3D printing technology and virtual simulation are creating new opportunities to improve the quality of treatments and patient safety.
Have you been in a situation where a generic treatment did not work very well for you or someone you know? Have you ever had that nagging feeling that maybe the doctor (as good as he or she may be) should really be treating YOU rather than a generalized representation of you?
In the US, 1 child in 68 is born with the Autism Spectrum Disorders. Children with Autism have learning and developmental disorders, and represent a number higher than all others disabilities put together. In the US alone, over 6.4% children have special needs in terms of cognitive, motor and sensory processing skills.
Inaccurate medications kill 5 times more than road accidents in developed countries. Jus in France, they cost 10 billion euros to the public health system. Around the globe, consolidated numbers are not easily accessible but we estimate that inaccurate medications cause at least 1 million deaths and cost 1000 billion dollars to public health systems every year.
The Living Heart Project aims to advance the development of safe and effective cardiovascular products and treatments by uniting engineering, scientific, and biomedical expertise to translate cutting-edge science into improved patient care. Through simulation and the creation of validated models, the project aims to provide personalized, interventional patient care.
Two 3D experiences, ultra realistic on a scientific point of view, were created through collaborative projects with technologic and scientific partners: "Staying Alive" and "Born To Be Alive".
"Staying Alive" is a serious game that allows to learn appropriate behaviors for first aid techniques.
Long term recordings of patients are often difficult due to complexity of measurement, hospitalization cost, burden for patients or lack of availability of specialized Doctors. Yet, these long term recordings are critical for an accurate diagnosis and care plan setting, in many pathologies such as Epilepsy, Cardiovascular disease and Sleep disorders.
