In the company’s news yesterday,
PositiveID Corp. announced its iglucose product was named a finalist in the Healthcare and Wellness Category of CTIA’s annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards competition, which honors the most innovative new products in 15 categories spanning the areas of mobile apps, consumer electronics, enterprise, and infrastructure.
A panel of industry experts, media, and analysts judged hundreds of entries, issuing scores on innovation, functionality, technological importance, and implementation. PositiveID’s FDA-cleared iglucose was chosen as a finalist among entries from industry giants such as Alcatel-Lucent, AT&T, HTC, Motorola, Nokia Siemens, Samsung, and Qualcomm.
What separates iglucose apart from other mobile health solutions on the market is its simplicity, which allows the product to be used by consumers of any technical skill level.
iglucose seamlessly communicates data from glucometers to the iglucose diabetes management portal; glucose readings can then be shared with family members and healthcare professionals via online, SMS text, e-mail, or fax.
Winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 9 at 2 p.m. CDT by Jon Fortt, technology correspondent for CNBC on the Exhibit Innovations Stage at International CTIA WIRELESS, taking place May 8–10, 2012 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
