Te Gio combines existing technologies (meter, lancet device, and lancet/strip drum) in a sleek portable orm that can beused with one hand on-the-go. Displaying BG results only, the Gio oers a radically simple and clean user experience. Teinnovative multi-stage testPort and dual-sided screen o the Gio allow or testing with any nger o either hand with oneintuitive motion. Te Gio’s durable surace is completely sel-contained, requires no external case and contains its ownwaste. Te Gio easily interaces with a smartphone or computer though bluetooth and mini-USB to use high-resolutionscreens more appropriate or complex diabetes management. Te Gio is as comortable, ecient and well-designed as ourhealth deserves.For 220 million Diabetics worldwide, testing Blood Glucose is the oundation o good sel-management. Every decisionabout insulin dosage, ood intake, and external actors depends on requent testing. Diabetics rely on their blood glucosemeters throughout each and every day. Te tools we use to monitor and understand our health become part o us. Tey should not be pathology-driven, but user-driven.While BG technology has improved signicantly in the past 30 years, current BG meters on the market still ignore a basictenet o design - less is more. All existing meters, even “all-in-one” models, require two hands and a surace to operate.Meters that advertise a “mini” orm blatantly ignore the necessity o a bulky case and carrying strips, lancing device,lancets, and a place to dispose o used supplies. While many meters display test memory or more advanced eatures, every meter screen currently on the market is either too small, too low-resolution, or too visually crowded to manage data.
