Advances in technologies such as glucose monitors, exercise wearables, closed-loop systems, and various smartphone applications are helping many people with diabetes to be more physically active. These technologies are designed to overcome the challenges associated with exercise duration, mode, relative intensity, and absolute intensity, all of which affect glucose homeostasis in people living with diabetes. At present, optimal use of these technologies depends largely on motivation, competence, and adherence to daily diabetes care requirements. This article discusses recent technologies designed to help patients with diabetes to be more physically active, while also trying to improve glucose control around exercise.

Abstract

Advances in technologies such as glucose monitors, exercise wearables, closed-loop systems, and various smartphone applications are helping many people with diabetes to be more physically active. These technologies are designed to overcome the challenges associated with exercise duration, mode, relative intensity, and absolute intensity, all of which affect glucose homeostasis in people living with diabetes. At present, optimal use of these technologies depends largely on motivation, competence, and adherence to daily diabetes care requirements. This article discusses recent technologies designed to help patients with diabetes to be more physically active, while also trying to improve glucose control around exercise.
