This Master’s Thesis focuses on diabetes in
developing countries. The project is based upon
qualitative data collected during field studies at
clinics and hospitals in Senegal and Gambia,
West Africa, and the overall vision is to design a
medical device for cheaper and more accessible
diabetes tests and monitorings of blood glucose
levels in developing countries. The product
developed in the project incorporates a newly
developed electrochemical measuring method
that ensures a significantly lower price for each
test while not being dependent on expensive
extra supplies that clinics in developing countries
do not have access to.
