One research group is developing the potential of using nanorobots for treating diabetes. The nanorobots use embedded nanobiosensors in the body to monitor blood glucose levels. The special sensors provide signals to mobile phones carried with the patient. If the glucose level is too low, the nanorobots activate a programmed tune in the cellular phone. The tune alerts the patient to take any necessary action regarding the diabetes. This potential use of the nanorobots may be more convenient and safe for data collection and patient monitoring.
