Healthcare professionals are involved in the detection, monitoring, management and treatment of chronic disease conditions and diabetes. The American Diabetes Association has stated that early detection is critical to improving the outcome.
In the U.S. there are about 25.8 million people with diabetes and another estimated 79 million with pre-diabetes. "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has declared diabetes at epidemic levels in the United States. The CDC estimates 90% of those with pre-diabetes don’t know they have the condition." The World Health Organization estimates 220 million people live with diabetes worldwide today and will more than double by 2030.
In early 2013 Freedom Meditech received FDA clearance for the first-in-class CLEARPATH DS-120™ device that detects autofluorescence of the crystalline lens of the eye. In independent scientific studies published in peer-reviewed journals, elevated autofluorescence measurements have been linked to high levels of advanced glycosylated end products, which accumulate in the presence of diabetes and uncontrolled glucose over time.

Our current offerings include:
The ClearPath DS-120™ received 510(k) market clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration, effective January 31, 2013.
The ClearPath DS-120™ is a proprietary non-invasive ophthalmic measurement tool that detects autofloresence of the crystalline lens of the eye. In independent scientific studies published in peer-reviewed journals, elevated autofluorescence measurements have been linked to high levels of advanced glycosylated end products which accumulate as a result of the aging process and the presence of systemic disease. This bio-photonic approach is appealing to healthcare providers and patients because the test is:
Our non-invasive glucose monitor is an investigational device not yet approved for market or sale in the United States
The non-invasive glucose monitor, is a rapid non-invasive, point of care, personal glucose meter that is operated by holding the small handheld device in front of the eye similar to a miniature telescope. Our non-invasive glucose monitor is planned to offer many benefits over the existing “finger prick”glucose test. The benefits include:
