Medtronic partners with Ford for SYNC-enabled in-car blood glucose monitoring.

This is very cool. Medtronic and Ford are collaborating to bring health connectivity to Ford cars equipped with Microsoft SYNC.

I can't wait for this technology to be available to patients with implantable defibrillators (ICDs). Maybe one day the system could recognize an ongoing dangerous arrhythmia and slow down or stop the car to prevent an accident.

Sounds like a good idea since we're behind the wheel so many hours these days and many of us have diabetes. This feature could prevent serious accidents.
