One Drop transcends the design of traditional glucose meters to address the emotional component of being dependent on a medical device; it provides a beautiful, modern design that can be used with pride. The Bluetooth connected meter makes logging simple with everything stored securely and automatically on your smartphone. One Drop is designed to empower and encourage, from the first moment the box is opened. Managing your diabetes should be an integrated part of your lifestyle – something that empowers, keeps you mindful, and helps to motivate.
Current diabetes care products are designed in a way that reminds people that they are sick. The forms and metaphors are those of medical equipment. While these products are serious and do provide a vital service, we wanted to move from feelings of sickness to feelings of wellness in every way possible. This entire experience, from the meter to the lancing device, to the case to carry it around needed to be rethought as a lifestyle experience. We wanted to inspire and empower the people experiencing these products.
From the moment the box is opened, the One Drop experience is simple, beautiful, thoughtful and empowering. Every element is considered and presented in a way to inspire pride, and even more importantly, enjoyment, when being used. The more often a diabetic tests his or her blood, the more information he or she has. This is especially true with One Drop and its connected app with powerful insights and social community. The solution inspires and enables users to integrate One Drop into their daily routine, having these products with them at all times.
The entire experience is built to be delightfully simple. The bluetooth meter does all its work automatically, sending the information seamlessly to the app. Everything is compact, efficient, and pocketable. The carrying system is a sleek and simple set of leather sleeves. Materials and finishes are rich and beautiful, meant to delight and inspire pride in use.
One Drop is a complete rethink of the entire experience around diabetes care and management. It requires diabetics to buy into the idea that there is a better way to purchase and use these products and supplies. The design of the products is a huge part of achieving that commitment.
One Drop inspires people to care for themselves. There are 29.1 million diabetics living in the United States alone. They are not being presented with solutions that fit their needs. They are not being presented with solutions that inspire and empower. Every aspect of the One Drop product experience is designed to change that.
