Portable Blood Glucose Meters (BGMs)

BGMs are used by individuals as a tool to measure blood sugar levels.
We can understand the effects of diet, exercise, and medication by knowing the blood glucose level.
The following are examples of OLED displays used for portable BGMs.

Daily use of BGMs for diabetics

Recording blood glucose fluctuations is
important for people with diabetes.
It is also useful for considering treatment policies.

The OLED display is recommended for those who
measure blood glucose multiple times a day
because it has good visibility in all conditions.

For people with vision impairments

If blood glucose levels continue to be high,
there is a risk of various diabetic complications
which can affect the eyes.

Some people may have poor eyesight.
We support those with diabetes by providing
clear-cut texts produced with an OLED display.

As OLED displays emit characters only,
it is easy to see clearly in both bright and dark places.
Tohoku Pioneer's OLED uses high-precision deposition technology.
Unlike LCD, OLED does not use RGB color filters.
Therefore, it is possible to have lower power consumption and longer lifetime.
