  • Images to fly in with the texts showing watch.. Gel pad etc by drawing interstitial fluid through sweat glands in the skins by the means of a small electric current (GEL PAD), with an incorporated camera and screen for photo recognition technology (SNAP &amp; MUUNCH) – device is able to sync with an web-based social platform (ONLINE APP).
  • Reason - Aids diabetic patients to obtain measurements and monitor their glucose levels at different time intervals – using non-invasive methods. - Photo recognition technology helps to identify the glucose concentrations in different kinds of food, allowing diabetic patients to have a higher level of awareness in their dietary intakes.Importance - enables diabetic patients to monitor their glucose level and to obtain and share information regarding glucose compositions in their dietary intakes – in particular food items that are non-generic and utilizes complicated cooking methods.Impact - Device is small and portable, and has functions unlike any other diabetic medical devices - web-based platform allows patients, doctors and dieticians to share information, experiences and set goals.
  • WhySerious health complications if unmeasured and left uncheckedHigh levels of sugar build up in their blood which can lead to serious health complicationsAlternative technologies that will aid decision making processincidence is increasing rapidly, and it is estimated that by 2030, this number will almost doubleDiabetes or diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease where the body does not make or does not use insulin properly, resulting in having too much sugar (glucose) in the bloodKeeping your blood sugar under control lowers risk for complications later. High blood sugar can harm organs and raise risk of heart disease.-Especially carbohydrates and sugar intake-Finger-stick method and non-invasive method
  • -ensure that gadget is easy to use-user not likely to be interrupted-Data that does not change easily and can make use of other technologies

  • According to Patient UK - “First line treatment for type 2 diabetes is diet, weight control and monitoring blood and glucose (sugar) in the blood.” The Main Aim of treatment for diabetes:To keep the blood glucose level in control – as normal as possible (70-150mg)To Reduce other risk factors: Keep blood pressure down by healthy eating, medication and exerciseTo detect and treat any complications early by checking levels of blood glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure, ongoing advice on diet and lifestyle, checking for early signs of complications
