Instant Diabetes Test Features

Science / Algorithm

First digital diabetes biomarker

The Instant Diabetes Test is the first non-invasive biomarker that detect if the individual has diabetes or is at high risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes.

  • Research studies recently published in Nature, here and here, show that PPG heart pulse data could be used as a novel non invasive biomarker for Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes.

In the palm of your hand

Instant Diabetes Test (IDT) uses high time-resolution PPG signal taken from a person's finger with a smartphone camera. PPG data is further processed to enhance signal-to-noise ratio and remove various artifacts.

Novel IDT score

Pre-processed PPG data points serve as the input to the sequence-to-sequence machine learning model, that along with other demographics data provide a probability of having Type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes.

All you need is a smartphone device

The IDT app and algorithm can operate on any iOS or Android smartphone.

Dataset is the key

To develop the IDT machine learning model we used several years of longitudinal PPG heart pulse data from more than 150,000 people, out of which 25,000 have Type 2 diabetes.

IDT Accuracy

With the enhanced PPG dataset, the specificity and sensitivity of the IDT biomarker matches the Fasting Plasma Glucose method used today in clinical practice.

The power of your smartphone

From placing your finger tip on the camera lens, we are able to measure PPGs by detecting color changes in the fingertip with each heartbeat.

From the PPG data, we are able to detect vascular damage caused by diabetes and provide an IDT Score.


How accurate is the test?

We compared the IDT results with the most common type 2 diabetes and prediabetes test, the Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) test.

After comparison, the IDT test performed better, with an AUC (area under the curve) of 0.89, where the FPG scored a 0.86.

0.8 to 0.9 is considered excellent, and more than 0.9 is considered outstanding.
