ViiT Health: Fast Facts

ViiT Health is a health tech company that develops computer vision software and hardware with the objective of identifying major health conditions by tracking analytes within the human body.

We currently specialize in glucose measurement through a non-invasive portable device, the Gluco 1.0, which uses Near Infrared Radiation technology and proprietary computer vision software to monitor glucose levels in live tissue.



The Problem

Despite paying more than $10 billion a year to monitor their blood sugar, 60% of the 422 million diabetics around the world are likely to quit treatment because of the cost of supplies and the pain caused by their devices. 


ViiT Health
Solution

The Gluco 1.0 is a cost-effective, needle-free glucose measurement device.

Market Size

The Gluco 1.0 will enter the $10 billion global puncture glucometer market servicing more than 422 million diabetics worldwide.

The first country to be activated will be Mexico, where diabetes is the second largest cause of death, with registered numbers of more than 20 million diabetics..

How It Works

With the Gluco 1.0 diabetics can check their blood sugar levels without needles or strips.  

Accurate glucose readings, no finger pricks required.

Traction & Accomplishments 

The Gluco 1.0 has been developed and is currently in Validation Protocols with the National institute for Nutrition in Mexico. To date, it has achieved a better error margin than puncture glucometers, above 90% accuracy. 

We have already formed several alliances in Mexico, the U.S. and Europe, including Softeq for engineering and business development, Mexico’s City Science and Technology Department for validation protocols, the Arrowhead Center from the University of New Mexico, Monaco Foundry for business development in Europe, the Mayan Fund, and Arroba Ingenieria for product iteration.
