Sanofi-aventis announced today the upcoming launch of the blood glucose monitoring (BGM) devices BGStar and iBGStar, developed by sanofi-aventis and its partner AgaMatrix. iBGStar connects to the iPhone or iPod touch and is planned to be made commercially available in early 2011.
BGStar and iBGStar have been designed by listening to the needs and desires of people with diabetes. Both products aim to integrate convenient, accurate and easy-to-use blood glucose management with decision-making support in everyday lives of people with diabetes. The ultra-compact iBGStar can be plugged into an iPhone or iPod touch and displays results on a full-color, touch screen. It can also be used separately for on-the-go testing.
The specially-designed and simple iBGStar Diabetes Manager App will allow data to be easily managed and communicated to healthcare professionals.
Now this is very interesting, can't wait to see what people/companies come up with next?
