Just the other day Apple unveiled its new iPhone 3.0 operating system, and presented some new interesting applications for the device. LifeScan, a Johnson & Johnson company focusing on tools for diabetics, showed off a prototype system for diabetes management on the iPhone. By interfacing a glucose meter with the iPhone, either via wireless Bluetooth or a cable, a patient can keep track of glucose levels and look at historical patterns. Among other features, LifeScan’s application on the iPhone can calculate sugar intake during meals, helping to adjust one’s diet more precisely.
