  • Kind of very weird. Our company, Rapidsoft Systems Inc, created wireless Bluetooth based software for Mobile Phones for reading data from a Glucometer three years ago. The Glucometer was made by one of our clients (Entrahealth Systems). The data was then sent to a server where it was stored and processed. The software was developed for various mobile devices (BB, J2ME phones). We have since then integrated many more mobile devices with medical devices. The use of Cable is so 17th century. Not sure what is unique to it. Sandeep Kumar, http://www.rapidsoftsystems.com
