Insulin-checker / Medical Equipment

Insulin-checker

The depth of skin plays a important role in the absorption. However, a experienced patient cannot inject into the right position everytime.
Based on this issue to explore the effect between the skin thickness and the syringes, the one type of syringe cannot solve all the diabetic patients’ problem(based on the age and their body condition). So I put the infrared measurements of skin technology, combined with an insulin pen , and then the patient can detect their own skin thickness. After that they can determine the best length of syringe to fit their skin, it will reduce the wrong parts of the discomfort and side effects.
