Thereby CACTUS divides the application scenario into two product states – measuringblood sugar levels and insulin injection. If the measuring state is activatedby opening CACTUS towards the bottom side, all the tools needed for measuringblood glucose levels and calculation of the insulin dose are accessible. Calculationand indications are displayed via energy efficient e-ink technology.
Once theinsulin dose is calculated, CACTUS is opened on the upper side for injection.After taking out the pen, one of the needles stored inside the case, can beapplied. The dose can be corrected directly on the pen if needed and pushingthe tip will start the injection process. The intuitive procedure of slidingthe case open in both directions not only organizes the action areas, but also dividesCACTUS into a protective cover and a functional inner part.
While CACTUS’interface goes along with all actions, recorded data can be saved viaM2M-communication so it can be visualized on other devices. This creates interactionbetween CACTUS and the patient’s smart phone or the doctor’s computer, who canlog into the data via DocCheck-verification.
