Diabetes data handling is broken

Page history last edited by Bernard Farrell 10 years ago

People with diabetes may use several devices to help maintain their blood sugar levels:

  • Blood Glucose Meters
  • Insulin Pumps
  • Continuous Glucose Monitors

 

Most of these have software that lets you get information from a specific device. But each pump, meter or monitor has it's own software, and none of these work together.

 

 

 

To use the software we need to connect each device to a PC, and they each have their own cables. These cables are not standard, like USB cables for cameras or MP3 players. The cables from an Accu-Chek meter cannot be used on a WaveSense meter or a Minimed insulin pump.

 

 

Currently the software for meters, pumps, and CGMs only works on Windows. So people who use an Apple computer have no way to download their data.
