Brief Summary:
This study categorized as a non significant risk trial is a monocentric, prospective, open-label comparative, paired-design trial aims to evaluate the performance and the tolerance of K'Watch CGM system in comparison with conventional reference (YSI system, BGM system and CGM systems ) . This trial will be conducted on patients with Type 1 and 2 of diabetes for 8 days.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Diabetes Device: K'watch

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this prospective study is to establish the performance and the cutaneous tolerance of the K'Watch device, for a Study Period of 8 hours (Lab-only study) to 8 days. This prospective study is divided in two phases: a first Laboratory phase will evaluate for 8 hours the safety and performance of the device under test (DUT) in a clinical controlled environment, then if no safety or critical performance issue occurred, the second phase will aim to collect data over a longer time frame, with the subjects using the DUT at home, and to get usability feedback for 6 additional consecutive days. This protocol is to evaluate a series of design iterations to K'Watch CGM system and its use on various populations.

All patients included will be followed for 28 days for safety requirements. 35 patients will be included in this trial and distributed in 7 iterations. For each iteration, the device tested will be improved according to the results obtained in the previous iteration.

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 35 participants
Observational Model: Other
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Clinical Investigation of K'Watch - Lab & Home Study
Actual Study Start Date : November 15, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 30, 2022
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 30, 2022

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
35 patients will be included in 7 iterations.
Device: K'watch

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. to determine the accuracy of K'Watch Release 0.x CGM system glucose readings at day 1 as compared to standard references. [ Time Frame: 14 months ]
    The Primary endpoint in this trial is the degree of compliance with the accuracy section of the FDA Class II Integrated continuous glucose monitoring (iCGM) requirements after one entire day.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Accuracy of the investigational device compared to the standard reference CGM devices [ Time Frame: Between day1 and day 7 ]
    Accuracy of the investigational device compared to the standard reference CGM devices by measuring the median absolute relative difference (MARD)

  2. The number and duration of gaps in sensor data availability [ Time Frame: 14 months ]
    This is intended to measure the time that the sensor was not able to measure glucose, even though the watch was connected. If the user removes the watch, then this time is not considered to be a "gap"

  3. Safety of the K'Watch system, characterizing device-related Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 14 months ]
    Safety of the K'Watch system, characterizing device-related Adverse Events

  4. Safety of the K'Watch system characterizing device-related pain intensity (Visual Analogue Scale scores from 0-10) recorded during the study. [ Time Frame: 14 months ]
    Safety of the K'Watch system characterizing device-related pain intensity (Visual Analogue Scale scores from 0-10) recorded during the study.
