Sonny Vu is one of the people responsible for the iBGStar. I was fortunate enough to see Sonny speak at Medicine X a couple of months ago. He’s a smart man. I know the Shine isn’t specifically a diabetes device, although being active certainly helps keep things in check, but the basic idea behind the Shine is what intrigues me the most.
“Simple. It’s about overcoming complexity.”
I know diabetes is a complex disease, and developing any tool to help manage this disease is exponentially more complex. And considering the variables that have to be accounted for, it’s unrealistic to expect industry-changing innovation overnight. For the most part the tools we use to manage this disease evolve incrementally, not radically.
But…what if our diabetes management tools could evolve radically?
