Evaluation

Lyxumia® is a disposable self-injector for type 2 diabetes patients. By encouraging the secretion on insulin, a new medical treatment, Lyxumia®, intends to lower blood sugar levels and can be used together with insulin injections. It is important that diabetes patients can safely manage daily blood sugar levels and continue treatment without feeling stress. This product offers a very simple process from needle assembling to injector, idle injection, setting doses, injection, and cleaning. The dial indicator that displays the volume of chemical solution in particular is superior in visibility and operability, and this is a great feature for users to treat themselves easily and assuredly. We also rated the minimal sizes of the parts that are used to make a rational design.
