Samantha Katz's Projects

  • LifeCase & LifeApp

    Team Members: Samantha Katz, Eric Schickli

    LifeCase and LifeApp form a complete diabetes management system using the phones users already carry, letting them leave cumbersome equipment cases and logbooks at home, and pumps concealed. LifeCase incorporates a glucose meter, lancer, and strip storage into a protective iPhone case. LifeApp integrates control of glucose meters, insulin pumps and logbooks into a single easy-to-use iPhone interface.
