Abstract [en]

What is missing today on the Swedish market for diabetic products?

Users with diabetes type 1 are today asking for products that will elevate the feeling of freedom and increase the quality of life. Diabetes type 1 is a disease where the pancreas is unable to produce insulin to adjust the level of blood sugar. To keep the value stable is the user in need of external control and insulin injection.

 

Today’s innovations are activity-based products that will offer high technology solutions. The products require the user to adapt, rather than designing the products for the user. The group have enlightened through extensive analysis the occasions a diabetic person perceive itself as exposed. Physical activity was found as the situation to be the hardest to control their values. They lack support from the physical products. The need of user-friendly products that offers greater options for an active lifestyle with a more sustainable suit was noticed.

 

The goal of the project has been to create a prototype that can demonstrate the possibility to simplify the treatment of diabetes through connecting three innovative products. The products will only be felt as one whole system by the user. The product caters the basic need of usability to create greater prerequisites for an easier everyday life.

 

The result of the project consists of a requested prototype of the product developed by the new directive of medical technique, MDR. The system will contribute to reduce excessive units, higher sustainability and greater value for the user. The process of developing have been conjoint with users which creates greater possibility for a higher demand of D4Actives future product.
