Abstract
In this paper, we present a system called 'Information Appliance for Diabetic Patients' which is designed for the monitoring of diabetic patients [1]. The system is an embedded microcomputer that can be used for self or remote monitoring. IADP is able to store a 'Patient profile (PP)'. Each patient profile consists of at least the patientís name, age, sex, address, weight, occupation, known allergies, medical history and the nearest hospitalís telephone number, doctorís phone and page numbers. In addition each profile has a database of the patientís blood sugar, blood pressure, body mass index, periodical urine analysis (protein, glucose, bodies), diet, drug intakes (including dosage quantity and time taken), and exercise periods. IADP also creates schedules for a patient, notifying him as to when the medication should be taken; the required amount is based on factors such as age, weight and daily activities. IADP has the ability to communicate with the external world for remote monitoring using a modem link.....
