DarioHealth, based in New York City and Caesarea, Israel, won FDA clearance for the Lightning-enabled version of its Dario glucometer, making it compatible with the iPhone 7, 8, and X.
Previously, the Dario relied on the headphone jack to transmit its readings to the Dario app on the smartphone. When Apple made the decision to get rid of the headphone jack, iPhone users of Dario had some decisions to make when thinking of upgrading to the next iPhone model. This is no longer the case, as patients can choose whether to go with the Lighting-based Dario or one that works via the headphone jack.
In a statement, Erez Raphael, Chairman and CEO of DarioHealth, said: “We’ve been working tirelessly to bring forth a solution that would meet the rigorous standards required to achieve the FDA clearance. We are proud that our organization worked with agility to ensure connectivity to the latest Apple devices. This is a big breakthrough to receive the FDA’s marketing clearance for the Dario product on iPhone 7, 8 and X, and allows many of our past users who upgraded to these new iPhones to renew their Dario experience. This continues DarioHealth’s U.S. market progress, and truly opens the door for wide-scale expansion in this pivotal market. Of course, this milestone is a testament to our superb teamwork, and I am proud of the hard work and success that our talented team has achieved.”
