Using interactive 3D game play to make complex medical knowledge more accessible
MetadataShow full item record
This research outlines a new approach, that takes complex medical, nutritional & activity data and presents it to the diabetic patient in the form of a mobile app/game that uses interactive 3D computer graphics & game play to make this complex information more accessible. The pilot randomized control study results indicate that the Diabetes Visualizer's use of interactive 3D game play increased the participants understanding of the condition, and its day-to-day management. More importantly the Diabetes Visualizer app stimulated participants interest in, and desire to engage in the task of diabetes management.
