Diabetes Tools and ForaCare collaborate for wireless data transfer
Truworth Health Technologies
Diabetes Tools and ForaCare announce a new collaboration to enable diabetes patients to wirelessly transfer blood glucose and pressure readings from ForaCare’s Bluetooth® capable monitors to Diabetes Tools’ smartphone app, part of the new Triabetes™ decision support software service.
Stockholm and St. Gallen, 17 April 2013

This cooperation results from successfully developing wireless compatibility between the two company’s products.

An outcome of this relationship is ForaCare’s enrollment as a technology partner and sponsor of an ongoing clinical study run by Diabetes Tools for a major healthcare organization in Poland. Here, Triabetes is integrated with a web-based Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system where patients use the smartphone app to track their daily diet and exercise choices. Study participants use ForaCare’s FORA Diamond MINI and FORA DUO ultima D40 blood glucose and pressure monitors to wirelessly transfer their readings to Triabetes.

Diabetes Tools and ForaCare will continue to globally promote this capability as each company maximizes their core technologies.

Bluetooth is a trademark of Bluetooth SIG. Triabetes is a trademark of Diabetes Tools Sweden AB.
