NFC (Near Field Communication)
NFC is a simple technology that allows two electronic devices to ‘talk’ to each other wirelessly at close range. If your smartphone/tablet device has NFC installed, it will allow you to automatically connect to your blood glucose meter to send and receive your results.
Easier than sending a text!
The new GlucoMen Areo blood glucose meter utilises NFC technology for Quicklink, to help you manage your diabetes better. QuickLink will enable you to automatically download your entire meter memory into the free logbook app GlucoLog Lite, on a smartphone/tablet device, simply by holding them back-to-back!
No more paper logbooks!
Results can be emailed directly to your HCP or carer, who receives the information directly into their smartphone/tablet or PC. Ideal for when extra advice or support is needed between clinic visits e.g. in an emergency, on holiday, or when you are sick.
Install the dedicated GlucoMen app onto your mobile device and you will be able to:
- Instantly view your logbook and graphs with the GlucoLog® Lite app and send them by email to your healthcare professional.
- Send and share your blood glucose results in real time, wherever you are
