It’s a concept insulin kit designed specially for children ages four and over with type 1 diabetes. This concept has won many awards due to innovative design, it encourages children to take their insulin in a fun way through the use of temporary tattoos (non-toxic natural pigments) that help children to remember where they have previously injected the insulin. Children love tattoos, this project takes advantage of children’s love for drawing. The tattoo marks certain area so that they can avoid complications at the injection site.
