Maybe now the detractors’ll lighten up about the abundance of ‘Berrys in society. Yesterday, the Hathaway Corporation let the world know that their subsidiary, Diabetes Detection Inc (DDI), is going to be included with this year’s BlackBerry Solutions Guide being given out by RIM at WES this year. And what’s so special about DDI? It’s pretty remarkable, actually.
DDI’s patented early stage diabetes detection device will allow physicians to diagnose neuropathy and early stage diabetes by holding a BlackberryÂ® against a patient’s leg or other extremity to test for quantified sensation levels. This data can then be wirelessly sent to a clinical information system for further analysis.
By being included in the BlackBerry Solutions Guide, this’ll open a lot of doors and expose DDI’s brilliance to the BlackBerry community. I don’t see why people wouldn’t be excited about this prospect. We always say the having a BlackBerry changes your life – well, it’s pretty awesome that it’s starting to save lives, too.
“To be included in the BlackBerryÂ® Solutions Guide at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium further solidifies our continued alliance with RIM to bring cutting-edge solutions to BlackBerryÂ® users in the medical field. The end goal for DDI is to have this device made available to as many physicians as possible so this dreaded disease can be diagnosed early and save lives,” stated Mr. Sadruddin Currimbhoy, COO of Hathaway.
