Sierra Wireless and PositiveID reported that Sierra Wireless AirPrime intelligent embedded modules will power PositiveID's iglucose mobile health solution for real-time diabetes management.

iglucose is the size of a smart phone and has a rechargeable battery, making it possible to be used anytime and anywhere and once connected to a data-capable glucometer, it communicates data to the iglucose database; blood glucose readings can then be shared in real-time with family members and health care professionals.

iglucose eliminates the burden of keeping journals and empowers individuals with diabetes to be more engaged in the self-management of their condition.

Sierra Wireless will provide the AirPrime Wireless Embedded GSM (global system for mobile communications) module that powers the wireless communication of iglucose.

Sierra Wireless AirPrime wireless modules offer an integration of hardware, software and services that simplifies and accelerates the end-to-end development of M2M applications.
