The painful finger prick process used to monitor blood glucose levels in children with type 1 diabetes could soon be replaced. A patch the size of a £2 coin contains a sensor which automatically reads blood glucose levels from cells just below the skin. Data is collected from the patch by the swipe of a wireless digital reader,  a system that uses the same technology as a contactless credit card or Oyster card.

The technology could soon be available for children with type 1 diabetes on the NHS.
