Discuss/Learn More about Diabetes

Although Diabetes affects millions of people, unless you are directly related to someone with the disease or have it yourself, many people do not understand diabetes (me included).

I am wondering the following:

  1. Is this project for both types of diabetes - (type 1 and type 2)
  2. Could children use this device?

It could help both types of diabetic patients, however, In the meantime we would prefer to focus on type 2 non-insulin dependent patients.

Mainly because we are still improving our device’s precision and this patients depend on a very accurate number to dose their insulin intake.

Our device is still 3d printed (haven’t been able to move to plastic injected pieces -due to cost-), and 3d printed pieces (even SLA) have small mistakes and debris that modify a little bit our readings.

The vast majority of diabetics do not depend on insulin.

We would like to use it on children as an early detection mechanism, because we are seeing an alarming increase on children with type 2 diabetes.

We are already testing our beta devices. Only step needed to move to clinical trials would be to have injected plastic pieces

Yes, it is a MVP, but it’s fully functional
