Transforming the Face of Diabetes Consumer Products

User Experience & Interface Design, Prototyping, Engineering

DarioHealth is a small startup based in Tel Aviv and creators of an all-in-one personalized, pocket-sized alternative to a bulky, conspicuous glucometer. Its slim design fits nearly into a pocket and consists of a glucose meter, a disposable test strip cartridge, and lancing device. The device is coupled with a robust real-time mobile app where patients can access all of their information as well as insights and patterns found in the data, allowing them to manage diabetes quickly, efficiently and accurately.

Dario approached Worrell to create a sleek and simple package design that enhanced the existing brand language, conveyed a high-end consumer goods feel, and created a significant point of differentiation among other devices living on the shelf. In addition to the packaging, Worrell was tasked with designing the replacement strips and cartridges, the quick start reference guide and the printed IFU.

Our Approach

Worrell’s User Experience and Industrial Design teams worked collaboratively to explore ideas around stopability and shopability at point-of-sale, to provide a superior out of box experience.

They performed a competitive audit of consumer electronics and existing diabetes testing devices, observing their placement in retail environments. They also collaborated with print vendors to help evaluate engineering costs of various papers, finishes and folds.

Iterative rounds of review with the client helped hone Worrell’s design direction. A small run of the final design was produced to specifications, and run through shipping tests to evaluate durability of ink finishes and structural integrity of shipping configurations.

Worrell’s User Experience team provided written information in seven different languages for an illustrated, quick-start reference guide, in addition to a full IFU.
