A WINDOW INTO YOUR BODY

While wearables take surface-level readings, the Abbott Libre Sense Biosensor goes further.

A WINDOW INTO YOUR BODY

The small biosensor worn on the back of the upper arm uses a thin, flexible filament inserted just under the skin to accurately measure glucose levels inside the body from the interstitial fluid3—a thin layer of fluid surrounding the cells of the tissues just below your skin.

COLLAPSE ALL EXPAND ALL

What is the Abbott Libre Sense Glucose Sport Biosensor?

The Abbott Libre Sense Glucose Sport Biosensor is designed for sports use only and offers streaming glucose data with a dynamic range of 55–200 mg/dL for performance athletes to monitor their glucose levels. It is specifically designed for sports use. The biosensor is not for medical use and is not intended for the diagnosis, treatment, or management of diabetes or any other disease.

Through non-exclusive partnerships, Abbott plans to make the biosensor compatible with sports companies’ mobile apps and products which will provide glucose levels, trends, and metrics to provide insights to support an optimal fuelling strategy and performance for athletes.

What benefit will the biosensor provide to athletes?

The biosensor is designed to provide a glucose-monitoring experience that will enable athletes to understand the efficacy of their nutritional choices during training and competition. It will therefore inform athletes about how to fuel appropriately, to fill their glycogen stores prior to a race, and to know when to replenish during a race to maintain athletic performance.9,10

How does a user obtain glucose readings from the biosensor?

To obtain glucose readings, users simply start a biosensor with a quick scan of the smartphone over the biosensor. After a 1-hour warm up period, users will start to automatically receive streaming glucose data every minute on their compatible smartphone app.

What products are compatible with the biosensor?

We have partnered with Supersapiens to display and translate glucose readings from our biosensor into fuelling strategies for athletes. Learn more at www.Supersapiens.com.

What components are included in the biosensor pack?

The biosensor pack contains the biosensor and an applicator to prepare the biosensor for use. The biosensor is applied to the back of the upper arm with the aid of the biosensor applicator.
