Health Tech Weekly host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic got the chance to interview Richard Binier from USVigilant.com about their diabetes management tools. Their award-winning tools like the Bee Insulin dose tracking device help diabetes patients manage their illnesses better and keep them healthier than those who may not be using these types of tools.
The Bee from Vigilant attaches to most commercially available insulin dosing pens and connects wirelessly to a smartphone app to track insulin dose amount and time for the patients. This is available now and other soon to be released diabetes management tools are coming soon!
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes diabetes as a significant health care issue for the world. Finding new tools to help people manage and treat this disease is becoming increasingly important. The Bee from Vigilant is one such tool.
From the Bee’s own website we find out that 347 million people worldwide have diabetes. Managing their insulin injections and blood sugar levels is painstaking work, and often patients lose track. Bee helps patients by creating a log book of insulin injection and blood sugar level data which they may share with their loved ones and healthcare providers.
After every insulin injection, simply twist the Bee to log the amount of insulin units injected and your blood sugar level. Then, press the cap and the data is beamed to a logbook your mobile device. If that device isn’t around at the moment, Bee saves the data for later transmission. The logbook is a convenient way to know exactly when and how much insulin you injected. If you choose, you can also share the logbook with your loved ones or healthcare provider.
