Improving Diabetes Management products
Diabetes is rapidly becoming a world health crisis. Today, diabetes management products treat glucose testing and insulin injection as separate processes, even though they should often be conducted together. In addition, nearly all rely on a large number of fiddly consumables to function. Gluco Duo consists of both a vastly improved glucose meter (operable by simply opening the cap and pushing on a pad, with no need for fiddly test strips or a separate finger pricker) and a connected insulin pen, which work seamlessly together via a custom app. The days of recording glucose readings and insulin doses are over, Gluco Duo works like you'd expect a 21st century device to - automatically. This system required the sympathetic design of apps, products and technical mechanisms in order to deliver value to both patients, and healthcare professionals.
