in the future Diasend will be used as the
industry standard for data transfer. A
patient should be able to get data into
Diasend from anywhere, making it a 'virtual
clinic'. Both HCPs and many diabetics
know the value of seamless data transfers
- it means being able to easily spot trends,
and easily communicate this information
either from HCP to patient or the other
way around. This information is often
'locked' into meters, pumps and CGMs
but sharing, accessing and understanding
this information by using Diasend will lead
to the best care outcomes.
Diasend personal software is
compatible with both PCs and MACs and
is the only system that lets multiple devices
input their data into one system. Diasend
is compatible with more than 100 devices.
These devices include glucose meters,
insulin pumps and continuous glucose
monitors (CGMs). It now also allows you
to choose to link to various activity tracker
systems including Fitbit, Up by Jawbone,
Nike+ FuelBand, Moves and Runkeeper.

Recent miniaturisation efforts in wireless
technology have paved the way for the
development of unobtrusive medical
devices that can be included in the
clothing or on the surface of the human
body to provide 'always on' connectivity.
These constantly connected devices can
transmit information via base stations and
smartphones directly to the patient or to a
medical expert over the internet providing
immediate diagnosis and feedback.
MediWise is currently developing a
wearable non-invasive glucose sensing
system called GlucoWise that clips-on to
the ear and transmits the patient's glucose
levels. The device provides a 'set-it-andAbove
and below: a prototype of Glucowise, a non-invasive
device (that means no finger pricking!) along with the likely
reader (bottom) for translating the data.
