London, UK (PRWEB) March 12, 2012
Today the new Apple iPhone device was unveiled which will allow Diabetics to manage their condition with. This £48 glucose monitor allows patients to check their blood sugar levels at any time using the phone.
Viavi, exclusive health management service, provide their opinion on this new technology and how it will be a breakthrough in medical technology. At Viavi the team thinks the iBGStar device looks like a great step forward in personal monitoring of blood glucose. The use of personal blood glucose monitors is of course nothing new but the iBGStar presents a great opportunity for results tracking and improved connectivity to medical support. The expected benefits will be better long term blood glucose management, and therefore expected improvements in secondary issues of diabetes such as heart attacks, strokes, eye damage, nerve damage and the like. This will mean a positive impact on the NHS and broader non-Diabetic populations from the development of such a device. It is always a slight shame to see such brilliant technology development focusing on the improved management and medication of Diabetes rather than improved early diagnosis and lifestyle correction for Type II diabetes, which is the real area issue driving global healthcare costs upwards each year. However, any advance in personal management and personal accountability for health is a positive step forwards as long as the training and infrastructure is set up to support good outcomes.
At Viavi the team are strong believers in leveraging advances in technology to improve personal health management. This can be applied in a preventative and lifestyle setting as effectively as in a chronic disease management situation.
