WaveSense For Your iPhone

by Leighann on July 26, 2010


You know I am on a quest to simplify diabetes data management for our family. What does this mean? I want to be able to plug our glucose meter and insulin pump directly into my Mac and download data. As I’ve said before: I’m a Mac, Diabetes is a PC.

So this may not be a complete solution, but it’s a step in the right direction: WaveSense is coming out with a Direct Connect Cable which will allow you to plug your Jazz meter into your iPhone, download data, and even e-mail it to your care team. (Though our endo’s office only allows faxes.)

I have never used the Jazz meter. I downloaded the Wavesense iPhone app to take a look, but haven’t used it because it would be another step to enter in numbers by hand. But I am very curious to get my hands on a Jazz meter and Direct Connect Cable when it’s released and give it a try.

Go to the WaveSense site for more information. You can also sign up for an e-mail alert when the release the cable.

Wow! I was describing this to a friend a few days ago as something that I’d love to see…had no idea there was one already in the works. It would be great if this could be standardized for all meters. I’ve looked around for diabetes related apps, but they pretty much all require double entry of information (into the current meter…we use the Omnipod… and then into the app). The one we have found helpful is Tap & Track for looking up carb amounts on the go. If Calorie King were to make an app, I’d gladly pay for it!

Jer- I thought Calorie King had an iPhone app, but I just did a search and didn’t see it.

I agree, most apps mean double entry. I don’t feel like they make logging easier, but rather add to the work. I want a “plug and play” feature where ALL meters and pumps (we are OmniPod too) plug directly into an iPhone or Mac.

Or better yet, let’s shoot for the stars and allow our iPhones to actually check blood sugars or control our pumps and then sync data with our Macs.

A girl can dream, right?

Glad to hear about going in the right direction. We had hoped the first step was getting away from pen and paper log booking.
Thanks for the feedback!

Thank you for commenting Andrew. It’s always good to know that companies are listening.
