HiLo is a new and approachable alternative to Type 1 Diabetes care. While other medical brands and supplies may feel cold and distant, HiLo aims to create a fun and easy experience with diabetes management. Through the use of color, shape, and type, HiLo breaks the mold of medical packaging. HiLo’s target audience ranges from ages 6 to 30. The box shape is designed to be compatible with school cubbies, lockers, desk drawers, weekend trip luggage, and more. As a lifelong condition typically diagnosed in children, HiLo aims to be a tool that users feel comfortable using throughout their various stages in life.
Each HiLo kit is 15 x 5.625 x 2.5 inches composed of an internal box and fitted sleeve. The modular packaging system inside allows users to customize their experience to their needs, as treatment options may range between users. The current box exploration contains the materials needed for an insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor (CGM). Extensions to this project could allow for insulin pens, testing meters, glucose tabs, or single-dose syringes.
