Worldwide there are about 10% population which is living with some form of disability. In the USA alone, there are about 4 million people who are visually impaired and living with Diabetes. There is a clear need for accessible medical technology not only for people with visual impairment but also with motor disability, learning disability and senior citizens.
Accessibility has been on the top of our minds since the very beginning, in fact right from the point when we started designing the hardware. However yep, we have to make sure for those small points which need to be assessed by a brilliant, expert team and hence we approached Barrierbreak to help us with the accessibility testing of
1. Diabeto hardware device
2. Diabeto product packaging and manuals
3. iOS application
We thank Shilpi Kapoor, the founder of Barrierbreak Technologies and Priti Rohra, the head of accessibility testing for helping us out with our endeavor in making Diabeto accessible!
