Glooko Receives FDA Clearance For Its Mobile Diabetes Tracker, Hires Intuit Wellness Exec As Its First CEO
Back in September, Glooko announced the release of a brand-new version of its iOS app, a digital logbook which helps people with diabetes track their blood glucose levels from their smartphone. The brand-new app brought support for six extra glucose meters, indicating that Glooko is now compatible with more than 17 different gadgets — a sign of the ground the start-up has made in its march towards meter agnosticism. Diabetes, similar to any condition that needs constant monitoring and monitoring (often through multiple gadgets), has been in sore demand of much better data and gadget interoperability, and Glooko is on a mission to do just that.
While there are a ton of digital logbooks in the app shop for those who frequently inspect blood glucose levels, most require individuals to enter records manually. Because launching in late 2011, Glooko has set itself apart by permitting them to download readings from multiple devices immediately. Nevertheless, up previously, Glooko ’ s Logbook Charts — an app that offers individuals robust analysis and visualizations of sugar information — has actually only been offered in Europe, however that changed today, as Glooko revealed that has actually obtained 510 (k) clearance from the FDA, permitting it to expand circulation and bring items like Logbook Charts to the U.S.
This is a considerable accomplishment for Glooko, particularly considering that FDA approval isn ’ t something that comes effortlessly or that takes place over night and could require months or years of effort to satisfy the government ’ s stringent laws. But now that it has regulatory approval as a Course 2 gadget, Glooko is clear to sell its products over the counter in addition to directly to customers. It additionally permits the start-up to begin courting healthcare providers, which provides them access to a huge market of possible institutional consumers.
With the nod of approval from the FDA, the startup is also announcing today that it has brand-new leadership at the helm, as Rick Altinger joins Glooko as CEO and Dean Lucas as its new VP of item advancement. Altinger is the company ’ s first CEO and brings over 15 years of industry experience in healthcare services, serving most lately as an executive at Intuit Wellness, where he led the business ’ s acquisition of Medfusion.
Lucas, too, is a veteran of the health care industry with 17 years of experience under his belt, having led interface and item design for both Doximity and Epocrates — the latter of which was recently gotten by Athenahealth for $ 293 million. He will also supposedly has strategies to help bring Glooko to Android, which is welcome information to Glooko users who have sustained a long wait for an iOS choice.
The Center for Condition Control has reported that 25.8 million Americans — 8.3 percent of the population — have diabetes and an approximated 79 million have prediabetes, making it one of the most pervasive diseases in the UNITED STATE. As an outcome, there ’ s a huge opportunity for digital wellness start-ups in leveraging innovation to help those who struggle with the illness to better handle its symptoms. Startups like Glooko and Omada Wellness represent the next generation of care and deterrence, finally helping the nation address a crucial illness that costs it $ 200 billion each year.
” Lack of support across numerous meter types and differing records transfer approaches have actually long withheld a really linked diabetes management solution, ” says the business ’ s new CEO. “ By producing a universal diabetes management platform, Glooko is beginning to crack the code, and I look forward to continued innovation and application of Glooko across health care as a unifying force in a disjointed ecological community. ”
To date, Glooko has raised $ 3.5 million in financing from The Social + Capital Partnership, Costs Campbell, Vint Cerf, Judy Estrin, Andy Hertzfeld, Venky Harinarayan, Russell Hirsch and Xtreme Labs.

It’s been pretty easy to look at recent Apple design patents and see that they haven’t carried with them the broad patent coverage many might think, but that isn’t the case with Apple’s new US patent — D661,296 — that issued on Tuesday. While a recent patent rumored to be on the Macbook Air design turned out to be a dud, covering only the bottom feet of the device, the ‘D296 patent is much different. This patent is clearly intended to broadly cover the distinctive wedge or teardrop profile of the notebook.
Follow the solid lines, not the dashed
With design patents it’s all about the drawings. There isn’t much in terms of a written description to go by, so the nuances of the drawings define the enforceable protection of the patent….

This morning, iOS jailbreak tool Absinthe 2.0 was released, bringing support for the new iPad — now, just a few hours later, FireCore has released a new version of the Seas0nPass jailbreak tool for the second-generation Apple TV. The big news here is that it finally supports untethered jailbreaking for Apple TV software version 5.0.1 — for those less familiar with jailbreaking, this means that you don’t need to plug the Apple TV into your computer during startup. Out of the 12 plugins FireCore highlights, ten of them are currently working — only the Overflow and Remote HD plugins aren’t working yet. Unfortunately, this applies only to the second-generation Apple TV — the new, 1080p model is incompatible. If you’re one of those…

The teardown is a requisite rite of passage for any hotly-anticipated gadget, and the Nokia Lumia 900 is no different. TechRepublic has done the honors in this case, prying apart the device’s polycarbonate shell to reveal the 1.4GHz Snapdragon SoC, 512MB of RAM, and 16GB of storage within.

The site’s impressions after disassembly are that Nokia had to limit hardware specs in order to hit the phone’s low price — but with Windows Phone itself being the biggest obstacle in our…

If one of your e-reader’s components is great but the rest of the device is lacking, where does that leave you? The first review of the Kyobo eReader has arrived and while its Qualcomm-provided Mirasol screen is lauded, that’s about it for the good news. Depite the snazzy 5.7-inch touchscreen combined with 1Ghz SnapDragon CPU, WiFi and Android 2.3.5, the package falls apart due to its inability to load apps, subpar battery life and long load times. The reading app crashed frequently during testing, the device was unable to load DRM-protected ebooks even after authorizing with Adobe DE, the reader displays Epub formats incorrectly, PDF view controls proved poor and YouTube video playback proved slow and stilted. Still, the page turn speed proved slightly faster than that of the Kindle Touch, so why harp on the negatives?
Ready to supersize your favorite RC helicopter and bullseye some perps with an aerial bean bag launcher? The Sheriff’s office in Montgomery County, Texas is, and it’s really freaking out the local news. KPRC Local 2 News feverishly asks if the Sheriff’s new unmanned Shadowhawk helicopter is a safety asset, or a privacy violation — we just think it’s awesome. Built and sold by Vanguard Defense Industries, this wireless whirlybird comes equipped with a remote video camera, an infrared heat-seeking device and an onboard GPS. It’s also capable of carrying weapons, although the Sheriff said that there were no plans to weaponize the UAV. The 50-pound chopper is FAA approved to help track down criminals on the run or assist swat teams in a standoff — a blessing that should keep this police drone from being grounded.

We’d typically expect a plaintiff to remain mum with legal action pending, but in a bizarre twist, Lodsys has taken to its blog to defend its reputation — or something. You may recall the patent holding firm’s letter, sent to individual Apple iOS developers last week demanding licensing fees for a somewhat-obscure patent. Understandably, the letters and related coverage prompted a negative response from developers and supporters. Posts to the Lodsys blog may be in response to inappropriate emails received over the weekend, which include death threats and “hateful bile” sent to Mark Small, the firm’s CEO. Click on through for full details.
