14 Surprising Causes of Dehydration

14 Surprising Causes of Dehydration | MettaSolutions Health Care | Scoop.it

Check out these 14 surprising causes of dehydration and how to prevent them.

World's smallest Smart glucose meter for the mobile phones get CE approval

World's smallest Smart glucose meter for the mobile phones get CE approval | MettaSolutions Health Care | Scoop.it
Philosys, a company based in New York City, received European CE Mark approval for its Gmate SMART glucose meter, an iPhone/iPad attachment that is the world’s smallest glucometer. The meter uses the iOS device via the headset jack as the interface to display results and track readings. It would seem that the same glucometer should also be compatible with other smartphones as long as an appropriate app is developed.

Philosys is currently looking to partner with cell phone firms to help distribute the Gmate SMART and hopes to have it’s device available to European customers by the end of the year.
