Ericsson and Brighter, a Swedish health-tech company, says they have introduced the world’s first complete IoT-health solution for monitoring and treating insulin-dependent diabetes.
Fadi Pharaon, President of Ericsson Middle East and Africa, said in a statement on Thursday said that Actiste® Diabetes Management was an important milestone for how connectivity can transform people’s lives for the better.
“Our global partnership with Brighter has now reached a stage of real deliveries to the market, utilizing the global connectivity service, based on our IoT Accelerator.
“The result is an enhanced healthcare industry in the UAE and wider GCC, and an improved quality of life for diabetes patients,” he said.
Pharaon noted that the cellular-enabled Actiste® devices were managed by Ericsson’s IoT Accelerator and securely connected by leading communications service providers to deliver a consistent level of service and a single dashboard.
“This provides Brighter with a unified view regardless of where those devices are deployed in the world,” Pharaon said.
He said that Actiste® brings together all required functions into a single connected device: blood sampling, blood glucose measurement and insulin injection.
He explained that the device was delivered as part of a subscription service, designed to simplify patient’s everyday life and optimize and improve treatments.
” The total number of people living with diabetes in United Arab Emirates(UAE) was currently 1.2 million, according to The International Diabetes Federation (IDF).
“Brighter is now ready to deliver Actiste® Diabetes Management as a Service in the UAE and the wider Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) with cross-border mobile connectivity to be provided by leading communication service providers,” he said.
Henrik Norström, Chief Executive Officer, Brighter said that by partnering with Ericsson, they would be able to offer a truly seamless customer experience.
“No matter where patients decide to go in the world, their generated health and treatment data will always be securely stored and available to improve their treatments,” Nordstrom said.
