Results from course “Embedded Systems”
Single project 10/17
People with diabetes need to check their sensors that measure blood glucose by hand with a reading device or a smartphone application to date. Thus the user is forced to retrieve the blood sugar value by hand constantly and to keep an eye on it. Children and disabled persons may not be able to interpret the values correctly and draw the right conclusions.
the value continuously and signals the status with LEDs. This way it is easier
to communicate diabetes to children and people with disabilities and they are
actively involved in the treatment.
The product reads the blood glucose value from an existing proprietary sensor (Freestyle Libre Sensor) using a device on the arm and sends it to Maja via Bluetooth. Maja is a turtle, which can be put on the user’s desk. Maja signals to the user the current state of the blood sugar value by flashing in different colours and by playing sounds.
More details about the project can be found in the wiki of the HRW FabLab:
“Embedded Systems” was developed as part of the Emscher-Lippe-hoch-4 project.
