Kim Frederiksen, the CEO of CuraTec Nordic, commented “We are excited about the opportunity of bringing GlucoTrack® to the marketplace, and we have an aggressive plan to launch this revolutionary product. Diabetics will finally have a way of effectively managing their disease in a pain free manner.”
This initial order of 100 units of GlucoTrack® will be delivered by the middle of September and will be used to initiate discussions with key stakeholders, including local diabetes centers, key physicians and payers, as commercialization begins in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland. Additional orders are expected before year end.

The commercialization of GlucoTrack® in Europe is one of Integrity’s near-term priorities. The Company has previously signed a distribution agreement for the Netherlands, and through its distributor is in discussions with local insurance companies for reimbursement of GlucoTrack®.
GlucoTrack® is a truly non-invasive monitoring device that rapidly measures and displays an individual’s glucose level in about a minute without finger pricking or any pain. GlucoTrack® features a small sensor that clips to the earlobe and measures the user’s glucose level using innovative and patented sensor technologies. The measured signals are analyzed using a proprietary algorithm and then a calculated glucose level is displayed on a small handheld device the size of a small mobile phone. The glucose results are stored in the device and used to estimate HbA1c level using a proprietary algorithm. The device can also display glucose values graphically, enabling the user to monitor glucose levels over time.
GlucoTrack® has received approvals for CE Mark in Europe and from the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety in South Korea for type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetics, and is currently in the early stages of commercialization in Europe, South Korea, and other geographies. GlucoTrack® is expected to begin clinical trials for United States FDA approval. The product is currently experimental in the United States and is limited to investigational use only.
