That's part of it -- but there's also Cygnus' very real concern that people 
receive the appropriate training before using the device .  .  . Especially 
in this early version of the Glucowatch, things can be a little tricky to get 
figured out.  They also want to make sure that people are using it 
appropriately (i.e. in terms of being a supplement to blood glucose 
monitoring and NOT a substitute for it) . . .
