Have a Great Trip! - New Travel Kit Provides People With Diabetes a Unique Resource to Help With Pre-Trip Planning and Offers Ti

INDIANAPOLIS, March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- An average Boeing 737 carries nearly 10 passengers who have diabetes; one person in about every five cars on the road also has diabetes-as do more than 20 million Americans, according to the American Diabetes Association. Whether you're going on a weekend getaway or a once-in-a-lifetime excursion across Europe, if you have diabetes, careful preparation is an essential component of getting ready for your trip.

There is a new, free resource available for people with diabetes to help them travel with ease and confidence (downloadable at http://www.accu-chek.com/travel). It offers some tips, lists and suggestions to help them prepare for the journey and make the most of their excursion.

The diabetes travel kit includes: -- "Have a Great Trip!" brochure, which details useful tips such as handling testing supplies and medications on trips, traveling across time zones, and special circumstances like traveling with an insulin pump -- A Doctor's Declaration/medical certificate form that lists the physician's contact information and approves the user to be carrying diabetes supplies (helpful when going through airport security, border crossings and customs) -- Packing lists -- Emergency Identification card -- Foreign Language phrase book, which translates some key phrases for people with diabetes into French, German, Japanese, Russian and Spanish

"It is important for people with diabetes to pay a little extra attention to their health while traveling and changing routines in order to maintain good diabetes control. For example, learning the 'carb counts' of foreign cuisine and gathering medical resources information for your destination are part of the planning process," said Christy Parkin, registered nurse and certified diabetes educator. "The ACCU-CHEK(R) Travel Kit is a great resource for planning the trip, and it is a useful take-along tool while you're away."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
