The Diabetes Center Berne today announced the launch of an initiative to develop technology to address the treatment of diabetes.
DCB is seeking innovators, co-creators, scientists and members of the diabetes community to join the company’s innovation challenge and join its community of diabetes technology developers.
The center requested anyone ranging from members of start-ups, healthcare professionals, researchers or individuals, saying that, if they have an idea or insight into how to improve the lives of those living with diabetes, they should bring it to the challenge.
DCB listed the topic for the challenge as “can your idea change glucose measurement forever?”
“In the last few years, diabetes technology has made enormous progress in improving the lives of people living with diabetes,” the center wrote in a news release. “However, there is still a great unmet need for innovative technology solutions that help ease the burden of diabetes and improve the lives of people who have it. One of these unmet needs is better glucose measurement.
“People with diabetes are asking for methods of glucose measurement that are more convenient, less invasive and more affordable. Hence why Diabetes Center Berne (DCB) is setting this challenge.”
