LifeScan Inc., a leader in blood glucose monitoring, released the latest version of its OneTouch Reveal mobile app with three new features that provide even more insight to support diabetes management.
The OneTouch Reveal mobile app is a diabetes management tool that can help people with diabetes track their blood sugar from their wireless device and easily share results with their healthcare team and loved ones. Adding to the app’s key feature of drawing a timeline of important blood sugar events and activities organized in a color-coded digital logbook, the just-released version of the OneTouch Reveal mobile app now includes these new user-friendly features:
- Automatic recurring high or low patterns notifications: The app now identifies recurring highs or lows and notifies users via opt-in alerts on their smartphone so they can take action to avoid them in the future. There are five different messages, including: High pattern detected (1 week); Low pattern detected (1 week); High recurring pattern detected (over last 14 days); Low recurring pattern detected (last 14 days); and a Sync reminder.
- Goal setting and tracking: Allows users to set and track personalized goals for blood glucose tests, carbohydrates logging, and number of steps taken per day.
- Meaningful monitoring: New A1C comparator shows users their 90-day-average compared to the inputted lab A1c so they can see how their blood sugar has been over the time.
The OneTouch Reveal mobile app seamlessly syncs with the OneTouch Verio Flex blood glucose monitoring (BGM) system with built-in Bluetoothi Smart Technology. Together, these tools help patients to understand their blood glucose numbers, take action to get back in range, and get on with life.
Another recent LifeScan innovation–the OneTouch Verio Reflect system with Blood Sugar Mentor– received CE marking certification last week with commercial launch in France anticipated for early November and other EMEA markets following in 2019. In addition, the OneTouch Ultra Plus Reflect meter–a blood glucose meter with the same features as the OneTouch Verio Reflect meter that utilizes OneTouch Ultra Plus test strips in place of the OneTouch Verio test strips–is also awaiting CE marking with launch anticipated in Germany, Belgium and other EMEA markets in 2019. The OneTouch Verio Reflect system has also been submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for 510(k) clearance, and to Health Canada for a Medical Device Licence. These new systems will also sync seamlessly with the OneTouch Reveal mobile app, and they will unlock additional features in the OneTouch Reveal mobile app, such as Blood Sugar Mentor messages, customization of device settings from the app, and synchronization of tagging.
