Our blood glucose meter sends the blood sugar value via Bluetooth to the patient’s mobile phone. Then the data is processed via text message or internet connection to a password protected internet database, the BodyTel Center. The central point of communication is the mobile phone which receives as well as automatically sends data. It also sends calibration codes and information like date and time to the meter. Additionally, today’s mobile phones have large color displays that are ideal to show gradients and add additional information like meals, medication, exercises, etc. Mobile phones can even read out the values loudly if requested which would be extremely beneficial to elderly diabetes patients with poor eye sight.” The full range of BodyTel’s diabetes management system comprises of GlucoTel, PressureTel- a blood pressure measuring device and WeightTel — a body weight and body fat scale. All devices transmit values via the patient’s mobile phone to the BodyTel Center.
