Abstract

When evaluating the potential of an alternative method to detects physiological changes that occur during hypoglycemia it is important to be aware of the perceived usefulness among potential users [17]. The aim of this study was to explore the perceived usefulness of a contactless monitor for detection of hypoglycemia among people with type 1-diabetes (T1D). Semi-structured interviews (n =8) were conducted after people with T1D used the contactless monitor at home. The interviews were analyzed using a thematic approach. Five overall themes were identified. Overall, the participants reported that the contactless monitor was an acceptable method to detect nocturnal hypoglycemia.
