Sierra Wireless and PositiveID Corporation have announced that Sierra Wireless AirPrime intelligent embedded modules will power PositiveID's iglucose mobile health solution for real-time diabetes management. Sierra Wireless will showcase the iglucose solution at its booth (1670) in the upcoming CTIA Wireless event in Orlando, Florida from March 22 to 24.
glucose is the size of a smart phone and has a rechargeable battery, making it possible to be used anytime and anywhere. Once connected to a data-capable glucometer, iglucose seamlessly communicates data to the iglucose database; blood glucose readings can then be shared in real-time with family members and health care professionals.
iglucose completely eliminates the burden of keeping journals and empowers individuals with diabetes to be more engaged in the self-management of their condition.
Sierra Wireless will provide the AirPrime Wireless Embedded GSM (global system for mobile communications) module that powers the wireless communication of iglucose.
PositiveID's strategy to provide an innovative m-health solution at a competitive price is critical for driving market adoption. Simplifying diabetes management for individuals while providing caregivers greater access to biometric data are two powerful benefits of the iglucose solution that make it an excellent solution to showcase the power of mobile technology to transform healthcare.
