Glycount: The future of humane diabetes management
A near future conceptual device which will be the next step for humane diabetic management. Based on the premise that there is a technology will enable us to measure blood sugar level instantaneously non invasively and continuously, how can it be effectively used to promote healthy and unfettered living for a people with diabetes, both type 1 and type 2.
INSPIRATION:
India, which now has 67 million diabetic patients.
The people...the ‘diabetics’, whose mindset ranges from
diabetes-as-life-sentence to the ones who despite
reports are in stout denial....also the food we eat, best joy in life!
