“The GMD X4 is a universal glucose monitoring device for those who have type 2 diabetes. The design aims to simplify the process of blood sugar checking by combining the three separate actions of finger pricking, blood transfer and test strip reading into one. This minimises hand movements which would help those with hand muscle problems.”

Another entry in the International Dyson Awards, this glucose monitoring device is designed by Maximilian Aji Wijoyoseno from Jakarta, Indonesia.

Amazing rendering.

The GMD X4 is such a beautiful piece of equipment that it makes me want to own one. It has a jewellery-like quality to it, and I can imagine that users would be proud to wear it around their neck.

Although distinctly far from feminine, it’s aesthetic appearance embodies universal quality. Geometric shapes, clean lines and deliberate colors gives this glucose monitoring device a truly universal appeal.

The GMD X4 is one of my favorite designs, but if I Maximilian is listening, I’m sure the female readers would love to see the GMD X4 in a feminine color scheme, and maybe the possibility to be worn as a necklace or a ring?

All the best to Maximilian, from the team at The Design Critic.
