The Charmr: A possible future for pump/meter integration


#1

If you haven’t seen this video and you are a pumper, you owe it to yourself. it is the result of San Francisco-based design agency Adaptive Path taking up TuDiabetes member and diabetes blogger Amy Tenderich on <a href=“http://www.diabetesmine.com/2007/08/www.diabetesmine.com/2007/04/an_open_letter_.html”>her challenge to develop a diabetes management device that blows our socks off.

More details in her blog post published earlier:

That right there is amazing. I saw this a few days ago and was just floored at how nice it looks compared to what we use now. All the technology is out there today. Hopefully someone will pick this up and make it.
