NightRider BluCon turns Libre into real-time CGM

| | ,

Connectivity transforms good into better on the way to best. The NightRider BluCon from Ambrosia Systems uses Bluetooth to turn a Libre Sensor into a real Continuous Glucose Monitor. Every 5 minutes, NightRider sends Libre glucose readings to a smartphone or watch without the wearer having to scan the sensor.

The reusable NightRider Bluetooth transmitter can be attached to the top of any Freestyle Libre Sensor, including the Libre 2. Blood glucose readings go to its LinkBluCon App (Google Play or App Store) on a smartphone or watch (Apple Watch). The user can set alarms for out-of-range, high and low readings, rise and fall rate, or no reading for 20 minutes. Up to five people can share readings using the FollowBluCon app (Google Play or App Store), and caregivers can also set alarms.

The wearer can record events like exercise, medication, and food on the app, sharing this data and their glucose readings with their doctor. The doctor can then correlate glucose levels and activity-related information with sudden spikes or falls in glucose levels. When others log into, all this information can be viewed.

NightRider BluCon is available in waterproof and non-waterproof models.

For total cost, Ambrosia says the Nightrider BluCon and Libre sensors are one-third that of other CGMs. This makes it a more affordable option for people with diabetes who have no insurance.
