Patients needed for DiabetesMine Challenge

Amy Tenderich writes with this news:

Innovation and patient-centered design are the driving forces behind the wildly successful DiabetesMine Design Challenge, but this year we’re shaking things up! We've just launched a new Patient Voices Contest in which e-Patients and hands-on caregivers can voice their concerns about diabetes device design directly to the Powers That Be!

The prizes for 10 winners of this exciting new contest are: 
  • an all-expense-paid
    trip to the 2012 DiabetesMine Innovation Summit at Stanford University
    in Palo, CA (taking place Nov 16, 2012)

AND ….

  • a brand-spanking new iBGStar
    from Sanofi-Aventis, the first-ever plug-in glucose meter for the
    iPhone and iTouch!

To enter, patients and caregivers simply submit a 2-3 minute video describing what they would like to see from diabetes device makers, and what issues they have with the current technology.

The 10 winners selected will attend this year’s DiabetesMine Innovation Summit as "delegates" from the diabetes community. They’ll have the opportunity to share their ideas and concerns with Pharma R&D, product designers, mobile health experts, investors, gaming experts, regulatory folks and other stakeholders.

The deadline for entries is June 12, 2012.
