A fashionable way of glucose monitoring
Diabetes has turned into a global pandemic. It is important that we educate ourselves about the disease, to know about its effect on the body and how to prevent onset. However, glucose monitors that are out on the market use an invasive method to examine the blood sugar level.
I hope my design can help people make rational changes in their behaviour, enabling them to make better food choices and easily visualize their glucose levels. Additionally, my design should facilitate the management of diabetes, allowing users to lead a life that is as close to normal as possible.
The design has two parts, one is a wearable ring and the other is a mobile application. The wearable ring will vibrate and send notifications to the user. Glucose data and food information will be available on mobile interfaces. Some settings of visuals like the colour of the LED lights and vibration levels are also adjustable from the mobile end.
Here are the occasions where users get to use my design.
