Re: [IP] Diabetes technology

Two companies (AccuCheck is one of them -- I forget the other) are making BG 
meters for PDAs. I think something should be out this year.

 New PDA9s have a 3smart flash2 option. This is like a tiny little hard drive
 where more programs or data can be stored. It is about the size of a postage
 stamp. You can also get smart chip readers for desktop computers.
 Glucometers should have this technology built into them as well. You could
 store your blood sugar and other nutritional, medication data on this chip,
 and then use the chip in a Palm or other computer. This would eliminate the
 need to hand enter every reading. Just download the data. You still have two
 devices, but they integrate better. And until miniaturization gets better,
 it would be hard to combine a PDA and glucometer into one device (especially
 since the PDA market is now focused on incorporating cell phones into
 PDA9s). >>
