The Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitoring system was recently named a winner in the international Good Design Awards in the Medical category. In 2019, our work with Dexcom on the G6 also won the Health & Wellness category of the Core 77 Design Awards, a Silver IDEA from the Industrial Design Society of America (IDSA), and a Silver Medical Design Excellence Award (MDEA).
"The opportunity to collaborate with Dexcom on the G6 has been a true privilege," said Dave Franchino, President of Design Concepts. "Dexcom’s system is a remarkable resource for helping individuals with diabetes manage their health, and the opportunity to make the G6 more accessible, reliable, usable, and approachable was a great challenge for our team. It has been a great partnership. Seeing this design get some well-deserved recognition has been a proud moment for our company and the talented and dedicated designers we are fortunate enough to have working with us. I could not be more proud."
This is the 69th year for the Good Design Awards, one of the oldest and most prestigious global awards for design excellence and innovation.
