Qualcomm To Market Cell Phones as Health Monitors

Qualcomm, a wireless technology company, in the second half of 2008 plans to launch a wireless mobile network that would allow people to use their cell phones to manage and monitor health issues, such as diabetes or dieting, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The service, called LifeComm, would offer cell phones with glucose meters that could be used to monitor blood sugar levels for people with diabetes, track aerobic activity and perform other medical functions.

Don Jones, vice president of business development for Qualcomm's health and life sciences unit, said that "there would be additional features on those phones that focus on health wellness or fitness, converged biosensors and medical devices, and personal health performance."
