Title: Diabetes care on smart phones running the Android platform - Design and implementation of a system to help self monitoring and managing
Authors: Widén, Anders
Abstract: The purpose of this thesis was to investigate the possibility and implementation of a logging application on a smart-phone to help diabetics in their daily lives. Diabetics have to keep track of measured blood glucose values as well as daily routines that affect their condition. Having this functionality in the users cell phone gives: easy access, mobility and communication capabilities. Research was done, including feedback from doctors, to provide a list of features that would help the patients the most. Effort was put into providing tools allowing the patients to understand what affects their condition and simplifying data entry. The results show that it possible to create an alternative to conventional logging with features not present in today's systems. Graphs can be sent by email, parents can receive reports of their children's values. Integration between exercise applications provides an easier way to track activities with GPS. Automatic upload of values from meter to phone is implemented as a proof of concept. All these concepts should make logging: easier, consistent and help diabetics keeping track of their condition. Feedback from doctors was positive, but an evaluation still has been done by users.
