A React Native wrapper for MedM DeviceKit SDK. It allows to seamlessly connect to a great deal of medical sensors via Bluetooth and get such data as heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, spirometry, etc. And with React Native it's even better! Just think about it: one codebase that works on both major platforms (iOS and Android) and supports lots of medical devices right out of the box! Note that this is just a wrapper, so in order to use it you still have to purchase the original library.
$ npm install react-native-device-kit --save
Injecting the MedM DeviceKit
In order for
react-native-device-kit to work you have to provide the original MedM DeviceKit library:
$ npx inject-device-kit --android /path/to/MedMDeviceKit.aar --ios /path/to/MedMDeviceKit.framework
You could as well add it to your
"postinstall": "inject-device-kit --android /path/to/MedMDeviceKit.aar --ios /path/to/MedMDeviceKit.framework"
Also, don't forget to embed MedM DeviceKit binaries into your application. In order to do that add
MedMDeviceKit.framework to your project in Xcode, then in "General" tab of your target add it to "Embedded Binaries" section.
Mostly automatic installation
$ react-native link
$ react-native link react-native-device-kit $ react-native link react-native-swift
react-native-swift peer dependency is required unless you already use Swift in your project.

- If you're planning to use stream measurements (as opposed to scalar measurements like blood glucose) then you'll probably need your app to work in background. For Android you would have to create a foreground service. On iOS it's easier: just add
bluetooth-centralmode to your
- Currently MedM DeviceKit returns measurements only as XML (documented here), so you'll need to use something like xmldom.
