PositiveID’s iglucose Diabetes Management System Gets U.S. Green Ligth

The Opportunity

According to the American Diabetes Association, “Keeping a log of your blood glucose results is vital. When you bring this record to your health care provider, you have a good picture of your body’s response to your diabetes care plan.” The problem is, for a variety of reasons, most people don’t keep journals of their blood glucose readings.

The Breakthrough

iglucose provides a breakthrough in diabetes management by automatically and wirelessly communicating blood glucose readings and creating logbooks and trend reports without the need for a mobile phone or manual entry. At the user’s consent, the data stored in the iglucose diabetes management portal can be shared automatically with family members, caregivers and healthcare professionals via text message, email or fax.

iglucose™ Glucometer

This product has not yet been cleared for sale in the United States by the FDA.

The iglucose glucometer combines the functionality of a blood glucose meter with the wireless technology platform of the iglucose System to form an all-in-one device. Please click HERE for more information.

PositiveID Corporation out of Delray Beach, Florida won clearance from the FDA for its wireless iglucose diabetes management system. The device is essentially a black box (with a couple lights) that has a USB port outside and a cellular chip inside. Plugging in a compatible glucometer (LifeScan OneTouch and Nipro Diagnostic True are listed in the press release) automatically triggers the technology to collect blood glucose readings and to send them over a mobile phone network to an online portal for clinicians and caretakers to review. The device is independent, not requiring a computer to operate, and the built-in cellular capabilities are not dependent on having to sign up for a phone plan.

Once the data is uploaded, charts and reports can be easily generated for a comprehensive analysis of glucose levels over time.
