Development of a System for Diabetics to Promote Independence in Everyday Life
Diabetes is a metabolic disease in which the body suffers an absolute or relative insulin deficiency. This deficiency causes an increased blood sugar level in the body. To prevent damage caused by permanently elevated blood sugar levels, diabetics must regularly check their blood sugar manually and inject themselves with insulin.
With the diabetes system PEAK a user-friendly operation was developed by colour, shape and software. The product family has geometric yet friendly shapes that create confidence. The modern design language eliminates the stigma of medical devices and creates a more accessible product. The accompanying storage case does not only provide a good overview, but also ensures that the devices can be charged. It accommodates the complete diabetes equipment and thus allows for user-friendly, well thought-through handling in everyday life.
