the process

My team began the design process with competitive analysis, interviews, and research, to gain insight on major pain points for diabetics.

As a diabetic, it is crucial to continuously monitor and track your glucose level. 

mapping

We discovered that the biggest issue users had was the need to monitor a variety of variables, often requiring a separate device or app to track each aspect of their condition.  This means carrying multiple devices and checking variables like carbohydrates, blood glucose, and insulin levels.

How, When, and where is monitoring taking place?

By creating storyboards and personas, we were able to define our user demographic and main use case.

how do we make the monitoring process simple and discrete?

Considering our main use case, we decided to something that would seamlessly pull data from devices and make the information easily accessible on a platform that would be discrete enough to use in public.

our solution

Unlike currently available apps, our design features a one-time sync  and automatic data upload from all medical devices and health apps.  As long as the user has one Medtronic device, they can use the app to view all of their data in one location.
