Diabetes, which disproportionately affects African-Americans, often requires invasive glucose monitoring. In 2015 Black-owned firm Better Life Technologies Group applied for a patent on a wearable device that detects glucose levels and blood content in gases emanating from the skin’s surface, as opposed to pricking a finger. The instrument will be available by the end of 2019.
