A new real-time blood glucose monitoring service called GlucoMON-RT from Diabetech (Dallas, TX) is designed for folks who have diabetic kids and others that need to be regularly monitored for blood glucose levels. For a $30 monthly service fee, Diabetech will relay the numbers off a portable glucometer and deliver them via text message, email, or page to a predetermined list of people. Hence one’s parents or relatives, or perhaps the doctor’s office, can always be in tune with the latest glucose readings.
The company explains the ease of operation of its technology:
Test with the market leading blood glucose meter. The GlucoMON is waiting and always ready to transmit your blood glucose results, automatically.
Connect your meter to the GlucoMON-PWA. The GlucoMON automatically reads the glucose meter.
GlucoMON and GlucoDYNAMIX do the rest. Within a few seconds,the GlucoMON, via Diabetech’s long-range wireless network, delivers the data to the GlucoDYNAMIX rules engine engaging the social network and the patient for better outcomes with less work.
