Silent T1D is a discreet device that helps young type 1 diabetics keep track of their blood glucose levels and deliver insulin when needed. The project transforms the unpleasant and cumbersome experience of treating diabetes by providing a subtle and fashionable accessory that allows the wearer to monitor her health wherever she goes. The Silent T1D system keeps users aware of their conditions through a Bluetooth bone conduction headphone that is connected to a glucose monitor. When needed, a smart patch fitted with micro needles can painlessly deliver insulin, eliminating the need for standard needles.
