I am a senior product design student at The Ohio State University and I am focusing my final senior project on designing for busy diabetics who are on-the-go and away from home during the day.
I would love to design a product that would help this user group manage their diabetes and reduce the frustrating complexities that interrupt their busy day. Issues to focus on are dietary complexities, insulin management, portability and lack of public info and awareness
With that, I would like to start an open ended discussion to gain information and inspire new ideas. Feel free to share past ideas, experiences and complexities that made you think “if only I had a …” or “They should make something that ……”.
My goal is to help the diabetic community by developing a useful product or system, any advice or input would be much appreciated!
