SNASK - A CONNECTED MEDICAL SERVICE FOR CHILDREN WITH DIABETES
What if you had to plan every single one of your meals based on carbs?
With our research on diabetes, we realised that this is the daily routine for children with type-1 diabetes, which is an incurable lack of insulin production.
SNASK is our proposal, which is a monitoring system for children with the disease. SNASK allows for easy flow of information between parent and child, at the same time as it incorporates nurses and treatments. SNASK uses infrared molecule scanning technology to provide nutrition data and gives personalised recommendations regarding insulin intake.
