There are more than 67 million diabetic patients in India alone, these “diabetics” have mindset ranges from diabetes-as-life-sentence to the ones who are in denial despite their medical reports. Keeping this in mind, Indrajeet Bakhale, an Indian industrial designer, wants to design wearable device that allows you to constantly check your blood sugar level, the result is Glycount, a humane diabetes management.
This design phase involved rigorous ideation via sketches for the physicality of the device and paper prototyping task and the screen flow. Amongst all the devices we wear, the form of a watch seemed to satisfy all the physical, technical, and the social requirements. For the screens, the selection of the fonts and weights were selected ensuring the best visibility, legibility across age groups.
