  1. Hi guys!

    My name is Nazia and I'm currently a student at university. I am in my second year and we are to "invent" something and then make a business proposal out of it. I have decided to base mine on diabetes. I am thinking of making a device that will make a diabetic person's life a whole lot easier.

    So far, I was thinking of making a wristband that will use "reverse iontophoresis" to measure one's blood sugar levels. Research shows that not a lot of people like to use needles. And of course it hard to use needles especially with children.This will get rid of the problem of having to use a needle to prick the finger, etc.

    Saying that, there will be a second wristband that will include a needle that will inject insulin for diabetics that need to control using insulin.

    This wristband will have a screen that shows the user thier glucose levels.

    My question is, what kind of information would you want this wristband to show. Or what kind of things would you want this wristband to do or include? Suggestions of a completely different device are also welcome and very much appreciated.

    Thank you for your responses in advance! :)
