A gaming approach to managing diabetes

Type-one diabetes is a life-threatening chronic disease common in children and adolescents. Egypt has almost a quarter of all diabetic children in the Middle East and North Africa region, yet many people fail to understand the high care standards and lifestyle changes needed to manage the disease. HI-LO is an application that uses a gaming approach to teach children to manage their own food consumption, blood-glucose levels and exercise regime. Daily goals are set to encourage the child to take ownership of their health, offering encouragement and support in a sustained and playful way.
