iHealth Previews iPhone-Connected Blood Glucose Monitor

by Steve Morgenstern on January 12, 2012

Diabetics will soon be able to measure their blood glucose levels directly on an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad thanks to the iHealth Smart GlucoMeter previewed at CES.

A small interface unit attaches to the Apple dock connector. An industry-standard test strip fits into this device and, after taking a blood sample, the results are calculated using a free downloadable app. The user can graphically chart results over 7-, 14- and 30-day timeframes. The results can also be sent to caregivers and healthcare professionals.

Also displayed at the show were a wireless body fat scale that connects to your Apple device via Wi-Fi, and a blood pressure dock that works with a wireless Bluetooth cuff for more comfortable readings. The blood pressure dock also doubles as a charging station for your iPhone, iPod or iPad. All of these products are scheduled for release in the second half of 2012, with pricing to be determined.
