Winner: Stannah Inclusive Design Award

Begego enables children to be independent in managing Type 1 diabetes. Begego is a watch, which allows connection to existing devices that children may use and alerts the user when necessary. As well as an app, it helps children understand how to manage diabetes, while updating the caregivers throughout the day.

Judge’s comment:

“This is a wearable that is attractive, appropriate and non-medical that helps children manage and look after a potentially critical condition – type 1 diabetes. It creates a circle of communication for the parents, carers and teachers and puts the child at the centre.”
Janne Hansen, Stannah
