Overview

Diabeatit will run on a tablet placed in patient waiting rooms across the San Diego area, enabling individuals to utilize this set time in an interactive and hands-on experience to learn more about diabetes. Our mobile application provides a tailored interface that targets different demographics with interactive views that allow the user to input responses to questions and read scientifically sound articles concerning the causes to a backend service that provides a secure environment for hosting and deploying our solution, and, additionally, for storing any data from an optional survey, data which will be used to better improve our user experience going forward.

Quarter Goals

  • Design the user interface of the web application to be user friendly and interactive.
  • Implement backend construction.
  • Build a working web application that will entertain and educate young adults.

Subteams

UX Team

The User Experience Subteam works on identifying user needs and conducting research by doing user interviews and prototype testing to reiterate the design of the application.

Software Development Team

The Software Development Team works on implementing the designs for the application using Gulp and Sass to build the final product.

Client

Idyvay Hadimay and Anupam Garg aim to promote the use of interactive medical displays throughout hospitals nationwide. By doing this, they hope to educate people on the causes and effects of various diseases which could lead to prevention and better care.
