This is really neat, video and more information at the site, it’s basically a pez candy like dispenser with glucose strips with a disposable container. Nice work from the kids. BD
If you recall, this competition is generously sponsored by Cory and Justin Oringer, two young brothers (ages 14 and 11, respectively) who have both been living with Type 1 diabetes for more than 10 years each, and are huge enthusiasts for design innovation in diabetes technology. Additional prize money is provided by DexCom and two other “angel investors.” On the judging panel, we’re proud to have experts from both MedGadget and IDEO design. Entrants, I believe that you have done them proud!
