Vital signs, heartbeat, breathing rate, temperature, and bloodpressure, measured, and monitored, inform a diabetic of their level of physical functioning.Diet meal and snack intake of carbohydrates in balance with protein,fat and total calories determine glucose level management action.Diabetics current diet management practices essentially relies andranges from reading food labels, to measuring food in spoons andcups, to math conversation from grams to ounces, to estimatingcalorie, carbohydrate, and components for their food intake. This in anarray of food on plates, and snacks made from packaged, home made,and restaurant foods.
IV. Concept Development
There is no single, non-invasive science fact based meter available toread glucose level, vital signs, and food nutrition and energy, but thecomponents to make one are.There is a high potential to collect, miniaturize, modify, integrate andassemble from commercially available components to make a singlehand held scanner that measures, integrates, and projects course of action data of glucose level, vital signs, nutrition and energycomponents of food.
Component One – Measure Food Make-Up Percentages
Component Two – Measure Volume Of Food In A Non LinearParticular Shape.
Commercially available hand held laser displacement sensor scanner toproduce a displacement image to measure a particular shape of foodfrom which the volume can be calculated that the shape would hold in
