ROTO is a compact snap-on device for insulin pens which helps to improve diabetics’ blood sugar level and to avoid injection scarring. Many diabetics suffer from a poorly controlled blood sugar level due to a speciel kind of scar tissue which appears after injecting a needle into the same skin area time after time. This scarring – called lipohypertrophy – blocks the insulin from properly entering the blood stream which provoces the use of ever higher dosis and loss of a stable blood suger level. ROTO advices the optimal injection location for each injection – quickly, intuitively, and with no extra effort from the user. ROTO also records your injections’ location and time. Because of this healthcare staff and doctors are able to monitor and customize the optimal injection pattern for the individual patient.
Formika owns equity in Nordic Healthcare Technology and is responsible for product design, user interface, mechanic design, production, materials, and sourcing.
Below is a few renderings and photos from the design process showing the pursuit of a super compact and intiutive product which has a minimal impact with the user’s usual interaction with the injection pen while adding a lot of valuable functionality.
