Title: USING MUSCLE TENSION SENSING TO LOCATE AN ANALYTE MEASUREMENT SITE ON THE SKIN
Abstract:
Apparatus for determining where to locate a measuring device (3) on skin, the apparatus having a muscle tension sensing device (1) arranged to sense muscle tension at different locations on the skin, and a processor (2) for determining and outputting an indication of where to locate the measuring device on the muscle, based on the sensed muscle tensions. This can help make the skin measurements such as non invasive glucose measurements more consistent, and more accurate.
