Mobility / hand-powered glucose meter


The Mobility glucose meter improves existing meters because it uses a rechargeable battery powered by a simple twisting motion. Through user interviews, it was discovered that many diabetics throw out their entire meter if the battery runs out of power because doctors give away free meters. The sustainable Mobility meter is ideal for users in developing countries who cannot easily access extra batteries. The robust form incorporates the essential testing strips and lancing devices. The sporty appearance hides the fact that it is a medical device and allows users to feel less self conscious about carrying it with them everywhere.
