Compact Care / lancing and measuring device

Compact Care

Devices for diabetics often are poorly designed and impede patients lifes.
So we created a compact device which contains all necessary components required for measuring blood sugar levels.
The appliance also works as a smartphone-case. This way we are able to reduce costs and provide improved services. Based on an App it leverages the computing and display capabilities of the smartphone. Coloured screens, horizontal structures and safety features like blood sugar trends increase the usability of the system. The direct use on smartphones appeals natural and prevents stigmatisation.
