Shine is a educational CGMS(continuous glucose monitor system) for child who has type-1 diabetes. Seamless interface helps caregivers to monitor and look after young diabetic patient.


A child with type-1 diabetes is required to learn a vast amount of knowledge on diabetes to ensure a healthy life. From a young age, the child must have healthy diet and calculate the exact amount of nutrition and insulin to manage their chronic condition. If they don’t maintain a healthy lifestyle, this disease can lead to death.

Parents live without personal life. Either one of the parent cannot have job because their primary goal is child safety at any moment.


Without proper treatment, child is in danger at any moment. Education is the primary key to lead their child to be aware of their health to successfully mange themselves from diabetes for benefit both the parents and the child's well being.
