e-lance / blood sugar meter

e-lance
e-lance

Many diabetics have to determine their blood sugar level several times a day. Elance eases the testing because the pricktool is integreated in the measurement module.To avoid an unintended prick Elance is equipped with a security mechanism: the prick aperture opens only after unlocking. The needles are also protected from dirt. Elance shouldŽt stigmatize its users: discretion is a very important design aspect. Outsider donŽt recognize it as a medical device. The design mirrors the innovative electronic-lancing technology and distances itself from the popular aesthetic of blood shugar meters. Elance is a medical device you donŽt have to hide.
