BodyTel Scientific Inc.'s CEO, Stefan Schraps, commented: "We are making tremendous strides in the development of our GlucoTel product and we are confident to be on schedule for product launch in Fall 2007. With the launch of our product nearing, and as worldwide partnerships are executed, it is extremely important that our European presence be firmly established."

The GlucoTel Meter is the first and only blood glucose monitoring device in the world with integrated Bluetooth technology. The meter is part of the GlucoTel system, which is a complete telemedical diabetes self-management system supporting patients and doctors in the treatment of diabetes and its secondary complications.

The GlucoTel blood glucose meter collects blood sugar readings and sends them to the patient's mobile phone via Bluetooth. Afterwards, the data is automatically sent to a secure Internet database via SMS and is centrally held there long-term. GlucoTel enables involvement of the patients in the treatment of diabetes, thereby improves the information basis and communication between doctor and patient and thus contributes to the course of therapy.
