Eversense CGM Wins a 2018 “Best of What’s New” Award

GERMANTOWN, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Senseonics Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: SENS) a medical technology
company focused on the development and commercialization of a long-term,
implantable continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system for people with
diabetes, today has announced that the Eversense® Continuous
Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System has been awarded one of Popular
Science’s
2018 “Best of What’s New” Awards in the Health
category.

Each year, Popular Science magazine reviews thousands of new
products and innovations in order to choose the top 100 winners across
10 categories. In order to win in a category, a product or technology
must represent a significant step forward in its category.

“We are pleased and honored to be chosen by Popular Science as a
‘Best of What’s New’ winner for 2018,” said Tim Goodnow, President and
CEO of Senseonics. “Our goal is to create innovative technology to help
people with diabetes have an easier time managing their disease. This
recognition just reinforces how consumer-driven medical devices can
transform patients’ management of a chronic disease. At Senseonics,
we’re proud that we’re changing the paradigm for diabetes care.”

The Eversense CGM System consists of a fluorescence-based sensor, a
smart transmitter worn over the sensor to facilitate data communication,
and a mobile app for displaying glucose values, trends and alerts. In
addition to featuring the first long-term and first implantable CGM
sensor, the system is also first to feature a smart transmitter that
provides wearers with discreet on-body vibratory alerts for high and low
glucose and that can be removed, recharged and re-adhered without
discarding the sensor. The sensor can now be inserted subcutaneously in
the upper arm by a health care provider via a brief in-office procedure.

“The ‘Best of What’s New’ Awards allow us the chance to examine and
honor the best innovations of the year,” says Popular Science
Editor-in-Chief Joe Brown. “This collection shapes our future, helps us
be more efficient, keeps us healthy and safe, and lets us have some fun
along the way. From simple household items to massive space-exploration
tools, we’re proud to bring you the Best of What’s New 2018.”
