March 21, 2007 - Hathaway Corp. announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Diabetes Detection Inc., (DDI), will be included in this year's Blackberry Solutions Guide put out by Research In Motion (RIM) at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium event in May 2007.
The BlackBerry Solutions Guide launches to over 3,000 customers at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium. In addition, over 40,000 BlackBerry Solutions Guide CDs get put in the hands of Carrier Sales teams and end customers, and the web version has over 250,000 visits a year.
This move allows DDI to introduce its diabetes detection device to the BlackBerry core community as it continues development and further builds on the alliance agreement signed with RIM last year.
DDI's patented early stage diabetes detection device will allow physicians to diagnose neuropathy and early stage diabetes by holding a Blackberry against a patient's leg or other extremity to test for quantified sensation levels. This data can then be wirelessly sent to a clinical information system for further analysis.
"To be included in the BlackBerry Solutions Guide at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium further solidifies our continued alliance with RIM to bring cutting-edge solutions to BlackBerry users in the medical field. The end goal for DDI is to have this device made available to as many physicians as possible so this dreaded disease can be diagnosed early and save lives," stated Mr. Sadruddin Currimbhoy, COO of Hathaway.
