LabStyle Innovations Executive Chairman's Presentation at Cleveland Clinic's 2013 Medical Innovation Summit Now Available Online
LabStyle seeking to make the Dario Platform the centerpiece of a new
era of interconnected software services and devices designed to provide
a healthier life for diabetic patients worldwide
RAMAT GAN, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
LabStyle Innovations Corp. (OTCQB:DRIO), developer of a
diabetes-related, cloud-based mobile health (mHealth) platform and the
Dario™ blood glucose monitoring system for patients and caregivers,
announces that a presentation delivered by Executive Chairman Dr. Oren
Fuerst at Cleveland Clinic's 2013 Medical Innovation Summit highlighting
LabStyle's latest developments is now available at www.mydario.com
and at http://www.slideshare.net/oren68/dario-investors-october-15-cleveland-adb.
Held October 14-16 in Cleveland under the theme "Finding Balance Through
Innovation. Obesity, Diabetes & the Metabolic Crisis," the Summit
brought together more than 1,000 executives, investors, entrepreneurs
and clinicians to examine one of the most critical issues in healthcare
today, namely how to combat the obesity epidemic.
Dr. Fuerst showcased how LabStyle is seeking to make Dario a focal point
for the comprehensive management of diabetes information, including a
diabetes management software platform that covers monitoring to therapy
and is designed to drive patient insight into how to better manage their
diabetes. The Dario app will consider various information patterns like
food intake, blood glucose levels, exercise and others. Dario received
CE mark approval this past September.
"Our goal is for the Dario software system to become the centerpiece in
a new era of interconnected devices and services that provide healthier
and better life for the diabetic patients worldwide," said Dr. Fuerst.
"Dario is designed to be a software-driven, comprehensive
data-management system with sophisticated insight and analytical tools
constantly attuned to each individual patient, and to enable integration
with various devices including most notably the modern, user-friendly
Dario glucose monitoring device."
"It was a privilege to speak to the esteemed group of attendees at the
2013 Medical Innovation Summit about our fresh and comprehensive
approach of managing diabetes and proactive care," he added. "Following
our initial roll out of the Dario app and device, we will also seek to
develop additional mHealth devices and services leveraging our
technologies in the future, both on our own and potentially in
partnership with others."
Simple, personal and feature-rich, Dario is poised to revolutionize the
self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG). Designed mainly to help type 1
and insulin-dependent type 2 diabetics better manage their lives, Dario
is an integrated device and software system that is designed to
facilitate regular testing and the capture and sharing of critical data,
which in turn could result in better blood glucose control, improved
health and lower healthcare expenditures.
Dario's contemporary design seeks to complement a user's active
lifestyle. The compact all-in-one device contains a lancet to obtain a
small drop of blood, a strip dispenser and a glucose reader adaptor to
hold the strip and interface with a smartphone. The adaptor plugs into
the smartphone's audio jack, and combines with a free app and
internet-based data services for unmatched functionality.
The Dario app will be able to be used independently of the Dario device
and regardless of the patient's glucose meter, and later this year will
be available in Europe as a free download from the App Store.
The Dario app will allow users to enter information about food intake
(for comparison with a database on carbohydrates, calories and more),
exercise and physical activity, and to use a proprietary insulin
calculator to determine the correct dose. Self-reported data along with
blood glucose results are analyzed and stored, and real-time, historical
or tailor-made data can then be shared with physicians, nurses,
dieticians, caregivers and others.
Dario provides alerts for abnormally high or low glucose levels, while
logs, charts and graphs provide an intuitive and clear display of data,
all of which is saved via cloud and syncs automatically with the app and
web portal. Frequent testing with Dario will be encouraged by multiple
reminder systems, virtual rewards and online competitions.
Recognizing that regular SMBG is but one element in managing diabetes, www.mydario.com
allows users to participate in a growing online community of fellow
diabetics, share stories, exchange tips and support one another.
LabStyle is committed to keeping Dario fresh and plans for regular
updates and improvements, including new functionality and new web
