A glucometer is used to determine the approximate concentration of glucose in the blood and is a key element of home-based blood glucose monitoring for people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
A blood glucose meter can allow wired or wireless communication with other devices such as smart phones, insulin dispensers or calorimeters. This can be useful for telehealth applications and remote patient monitoring.
Freescale offers specific MCUs with integrated analog blocks and ZigBee® and proprietary wireless solutions for glucometers.
Based on Continua Health Alliance standards for healthcare devices, a Kinetis MCU encapsulates the data using the IEEE® 11073 standard. In this example, a Freescale Freedom development platform operates as the near field communication board that bridges between the NFC antenna and the manager.See more demos at the Freescale Community >
