ABOUT DIAMOND SERIES PRODUCTS

The Diamond Series devices make it possible for patients to self-monitor as well as track their health condition for better control. There is significant evidence that patients who monitor their chronic conditions have better glycemic control, leading to improved therapy outcomes and lower risk of long-term complications.

ForaCare provides flexible solutions to bridge gaps among medical devices including glucose meters, blood pressure monitors, and thermometers to transmission gateways and the Internet-based backend system. FORA technology has embedded wired or wireless modules (including ZigBee and Bluetooth) and provides corresponding home gateways to overcome transmission barriers that patients face with other telehealth technologies.
