Polytel® Wireless Glucose Meter Accessories (GMAs)
As we all know, some of the most recent glucose meters have built-in connectivity. However, tens of millions of patients already have glucose meters that they like. Having many test strips already purchased may be another reason to want to keep an existing glucose meters. We offer easy solutions for incorporating many legacy glucose meters into a diabetes monitoring solution.
Glucose Meter Accessory 3 (GMA3)
The GMA3 is a Bluetooth Smart (BLE) adapter which can be configured
for different meter families with the use of the appropriate cable. The unit is typically sold with a cable suited to one meter family, but can be easily converted to support another meter family by swapping cables. Note that BLE is compatible with iOS since iPhone 4S and most Android phones made since 2016; a compatible app is required.

Note 1: Due to a recent Bayer decision, perhaps to discourage telehealth applications, Contour XT meters with serial numbers above 6000001 and Contour Next EZ meters with serial numbers above A000001 require the GMA to be unplugged from the meter during measurement.
Note2: Both the TRUEmetrix and the TRUEresult require a cradle (obtainable from Trividia) to operate. Quoting Nipro: “To order a USB cable and/or docking station for your meter please call 1-866-476-3837.”
