This clever design by Maral Kinran and Stefania Berselli is the 'Diaby' Glucose Test Watch. It's designed to be a non-invasive way for kids with diabetes to monitor their glucose levels using infrared technology.

The 'Diaby' Glucose Test Watch won the Gold Award at the SYDA (Samsung Young Design Awards). It's a bangle-style bracelet with tiny nubs and a face that displays a cute smiley face when the child's glucose levels are safe.

Implications - For children, the pain and fear of regular needles is daunting and uninviting, despite its necessity. Diaby is a non-invasive method of diabetes testing for children that will help to monitor blood sugar levels without the discomfort of the normal procedure. Winning a Gold Award in SYDA for innovation, it's only a matter of time before the monitor is adopted at large in the medical community.
