Dario is a comprehensive system that combines an all-in-one self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) device consisting of a lancet to obtain a blood sample, a novel disposable test strip vial and a glucose reader adaptor to hold the strip and interface with the smartphone, with a smartphone application and internet-based data services. Among other features, the Dario app includes a data log for blood glucose, food intake, insulin recommendation and analysis, and data sharing tools.

Dario's contemporary design ensures the product complements a user's lifestyle, with no shame or embarrassment. The compact all-in-one device contains a lancet to obtain a small drop of blood, a strip dispenser and a glucose reader adaptor to hold the strip and interface with a smartphone. The adaptor plugs into the smartphone's audio jack, and combines with a free app and internet-based data services for unmatched functionality.
With Dario users can enter information about food intake (for comparison with a database on carbohydrates, calories and more), exercise and physical activity, and use a proprietary insulin calculator to determine the correct dose. Self-reported data along with blood glucose results are analyzed and stored, and real-time, historical or tailor-made data can then be shared with physicians, nurses, dieticians, caregivers and others.
Dario provides alerts for abnormally high or low glucose levels, while logs, charts and graphs provide an intuitive and clear display of data, all of which is saved via cloud and syncs automatically with the application and web portal. Frequent testing with Dario is encouraged by multiple reminder systems, virtual rewards and online competitions.
