Discussion Summary

The group discusses how the receiver for the Dexcom G4 continuous glucose monitor could be improved for ease of use by older adults.

Explorer Gabriella explains the difficulty she has pushing the buttons on the receiver, and asks if there is a modification that might make it easier for her to manipulate the buttons. The group's message to the developer is that the design is not good for older or arthritic hands and there is room for improvement on that front.
