Designer Tommaso Ceschi has designed the MyO Yoyo Glucometer to make life easier and more fun for diabetic children. Ceschi’s design literally turns the glucometer into a yo-yo. This is designed for both fun and functionality. The MyO gathers energy when spun and converts it into power for the built-in glucometer. The MyO Yoyo Glucometer also features a USB slot to let children quickly upload information on their health to their computer.

Turning medical devices into play devices is one way to make coping with health issues easier. The MyO Yoyo Glucometer appears to be nothing more than a concept, but here’s hoping that this design will inspire a new range of more playful medical devices.
