Abstract

Collaborating with the Enterprise Research Centre at the University of Limerick (UL) in Ireland, we designed, developed, and implemented a proof-of-concept glucose meter adapter that allows blood glucose level readings to be securely transmitted to a remote database via existing WiFi technology. By using open source software and embedded components, we have created a highly flexible platform that allows healthcare professionals to monitor patients in near real-time. Our device aims to simplify the lifestyle of diabetics while providing new opportunities for statistical research and analysis of diabetes.
