With diabetes becoming almost a household disease now, the need for blood glucose monitoring has become a compulsion.The concentration of glucose in the blood is something that diabetic patients constantly need to be aware of to combat blood sugar. Most such devices involve either expensive chemical strips or the piercing of skin. Lima, however, is an exceptional monitor that checks the blood sugar level through infra red radiation. Designed by Damien Mackiewicz, it was originally meant for people engaged in extreme sports and other outdoor feats, Lima is now open to all diabetic patients. The device is basically quite a handy one – all it requires is to be placed within the corpus of the palm and alternatively compressed and released. These frequent motions increase the blood flow in the palm, and Lima starts its scanning process. What makes it more smart is its internal memory which stores all the scanning details for later use. Bearing a smooth finish and firm grip, Lima is surely the perfect gift for all those who are a prey to this malady.
