Sugarpod Device
The Sugarpod voice-enabled scale and foot scanner which automatically checks for diabetic foot ulcers, a serious but often preventable complication of diabetes.

Demo Day
The scale harnesses the routine of weighing yourself to scan your feet. Alexa is embedded in the device, and reads back your weight, tells you if there are any problems with your feet, and prompts you through your self-management tasks.

Sugarpod Utterances
The voice interface supports people with diabetes by providing a broad range of information and interaction capabilities.

Device Prototype Evolution
The scale went through several design iterations during the course of the challenge. We unveiled the round device on Demo Day
