Diabetes Data Sculptures show clinically relevant blood glucose trends through color, form, and texture so that patients can understand their health over time without having to grasp complicated charts and numbers.
Who we work with:
MedSculp works with diabetes centers, camps, health and public organizations by providing scalable interactive content that demonstrates key diabetes concepts and personal health data.
