|Artificial Life to Launch 'GluCoMo'
First Major Telemedicine Mobile App
LOS ANGELES and HONG KONG, June 30, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Artificial
Life, Inc., (OTCBB:ALIF) (http://www.artificial-life.com), a leading
provider of award-winning mobile 3G technology and applications,
announced today their soon to be launched mobile telemedicine health
solution GluCoMo (short for: GluCose Monitor), the first in a series of
planned mobile healthcare products.
GluCoMo is a diabetes management solution leveraging Artificial Life's
OPUS-M(TM) platform for end-consumers, healthcare providers and
healthcare businesses. GluCoMo is scheduled for commercial availability
in July, 2010.
The application is a mobile telemedicine and healthcare solution
allowing diabetics, caregivers, doctors, and hospitals to share and
communicate through mobile mediums such as smartphones, tablets,
netbooks and other mobile internet devices. With the facilitation of
mobile data sharing and smart back-end processes, the goals are to
promote better personal diabetes management habits, increase peace of
mind for friends, families and caregivers, and enable remote and real
time monitoring and management of patients by doctors and hospitals for
advancement in healthcare services and a reduction in administration
GluCoMo is a customized mobile device front-end client and portal as
well as a custom back-end infrastructure supported by Artificial Life's
m-commerce solution OPUS-M:
The GluCoMo front-end is comprised of two parts, a mobile client and
web portal. The mobile client is able to support most major smartphone
platforms allowing users to keep track of relevant information in real
time such as blood sugar levels, calorie intake, personal activities,
medication intake and more. Visualization of the data gives users quick
snapshots of their medical history. Sharing of information is also
simplified and promoted through online social communities and forums so
that users can quickly share their latest medical status, diabetic
activities and medical information with others. For greater flexibility
and convenience, a synchronized web portal is also available for users,
their friends, family members and caregivers.
The GluCoMo back-end is powered by Artificial Life's OPUS-M technology
and allows for friends, families, and caregivers to share critical
information and thoughts with each other.
The front-end mobile client of GluCoMo will initially be launched as a
limited free mobile app and service. Depending on the needs of the
users, additional features and functions for the mobile client can then
be purchased inside the mobile app in the coming versions.
GluCoMo will soon also be offered as a white label solution and can be
adopted by doctors, health clinics, hospitals and/or healthcare
industry businesses. The pricing of the customization, integration and
maintenance services are based on monthly rental and usage fees.
"Artificial Life further expands its business app portfolio by
launching a first and powerful mobile medical solution for diabetics.
Other telemedicine products will follow," said Eberhard Schoneburg, CEO
of Artificial Life, Inc.
