balance your ripple

Born out of the meaningless of measuring glucose in isolation

How did it all start?

In 2015 Dr Rod Lane, the inventor of Ripple, was developing a new device for treating paralysis when he noticed that the measurements recorded were affected by mealtimes. Understanding that what he was seeing must be due to blood sugar levels he thought it was a good way to measure glucose.  In the end it turned out to be so much more.

Following investment, Rod and his team successfully won an Innovate UK grant to develop the proof-of-concept that we went on to obtain patent protection for. From the outset the team knew they had something special: a wearable sensor able to measure blood sugar changes as they happen, through fully intact skin; no needles, no patches, and no pain.

The existing wearable technology monitors activity and sleep, but not the effects of nutrition, without manual input.

As development continued, the team began to understand the complex relationship between glucose levels from food, lactate levels from activity and exercise, and deep tissue hydrations.

Ripple can measure all of these.
