Monitoring glucose levels is one of the most important activities for people of all ages who have a type of diabetes. Among the different products in the market that aids patients to perform this activity, we find the Continues Glucose Monitor Systems (CGM).
Our role & how we embraced it.
Our expert team tackled this challenge with the Design Thinking process using a wide variety of methods and activities including research, participatory design, workshops and wireframing, focusing on designing the best and most accessible experience for users and stakeholders.
What are the wins?
- We designed a mobile application that, once paired with a sensor placed on the user’s skin, glucose levels are sent in real-time.
- Users can visualize their glucose levels at any time of the day and see the possible trends based on previous data.
- They are able to set up low and high glucose alerts to receive notifications if their glucose levels are rapidly moving up or down to take timely actions.
