MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — LabStyle Innovations and Auto Control Medical have launched the Dario Diabetes Management Solution, a compact all-in-one system that helps people with diabetes monitor blood sugar levels and proactively manage their disease using their smartphone or tablet.

Approved by Health Canada, Dario connects via headphone jack to turn a mobile device into a glucose monitor, equipped with a lancing device and test strips to take blood samples on the spot.

It provides the diabetes patient’s real-time and historical blood glucose data to spot patterns, recommend treatments and support behavior changes.

Auto Control Medical is a privately owned Canadian company that focuses on self-monitoring products. Headquartered in Mississauga Ont., it distributes health monitoring products through pharmacies and homecare across Canada.

LabStyle Innovations Corp. develops and commercializes laboratory-testing capabilities using smart mobile devices.
