Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
Telcare® today announced the continued expansion of its wireless diabetes management product suite with the rollout of the Diabetes Pal™ app for Android™. Diabetes Pal™ is currently the top-rated Diabetes Application in the Apple® App Store. The Telcare BGM® is the world’s first cloud-connected glucose meter.
“The release of Diabetes Pal™ for Android™-based devices is a strong milestone for us as a wireless-focused medical-technology company. More importantly, it increases the universe of people with diabetes, family members, and healthcare professionals who are now able to analyze, organize and share glucose readings captured by the Telcare BGM® glucose meter,” said Dr. Jonathan Javitt, Chief Executive Officer of Telcare, Inc.
Patients who download the free Diabetes Pal™ version for Android™ will now be able to store and view all of their blood glucose readings, nutrition information, medication data, and custom notes. Using Diabetes Pal™, family members and healthcare professionals will have the ability to spot trends and improve self-management of blood glucose.
Telcare’s offering differs from the myriad of connected diabetes solutions emerging in the marketplace in that the patient does not need to take any additional steps other than ordinary glucose testing in order to have all information organized and available at all times. As the Gartner group, a leading industry expert group stated in naming Telcare one of its Cool Vendors for 2012, “…in a world of starry-eyed idealists, Telcare’s solution is as simple as Grandma’s Kindle.”
Both the Telcare BGM® glucose meter and Telserve, its linked cloud server, received 510(k) clearance by the United States FDA in July, 2011. The Telcare BGM® is currently available for purchase at http://store.telcare.com/.

- Automatic and manual entry options
