About Lingo

Meet Lingo, a new biosensing technology that provides users a window into their body.

Biowearable technology will digitize, decentralize and democratize healthcare, enabling consumers to take control of their own health.

Abbott and Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Robert B. Ford made CES history, presenting a keynote entitled "Human-Powered Health: Unlocking the Possibility of You" at the most influential tech event in the world. Abbott was the first healthcare company ever to do so. "Technology gives us the power to digitize, decentralize and democratize healthcare, create a shared language between you and your doctor - and put more control of your health in your hands," Mr. Ford said. "We're creating a future that will bring you and your loved ones care that's more personal and precise. It's happening right now. And its potential is no less than incredible."

Lingo extends the Abbott sensing technology platform that Abbott pioneered in 2014 for people with diabetes, allowing people to continuously monitor their glucose levels with a small sensor on the back of the upper arm. Actress and comedian Sherri Shepherd shared live on the CES stage how FreeStyle Libre 2 changed her life, giving her glucose readings, right on her smartphone, unique to her body so she can make healthier decisions.
