Solar powered implanted glucose monitor for diabetics

Biorasis has developed a state-of-the-art implantable sensor that could replace the use of conventional finger-prick monitors for diabetics. The implantable sensor, which is rice grain-sized, is called Glucowizzard and could be injected into a patient's wrist to continuously monitor glucose levels for approximately a year. The Glucowizzard is solar powered.
