The personal blood glucose meter was developed for Hypoguard, part of the Medisys Group Company. They needed a low-cost, reusable meter. It uses a drop-blood biosensor strip. It was designed to be compact, convenient to use and offer quick results on a large, easy-to-read digital display. Tactile buttons were designed to help users who often lose the sensitivity in their finger-tips. A carrycase was also developed for the meter. The products were engineered using ProENGINEER 3D CAD, with all mouldings fully defined for the toolmaker. Working closely with a Far East manufacturer; costs were kept to a minimum.
