By Victoria McCulloch, Sarah Hope, Brian Loranger and Paul Rea

Abstract

With diabetes being one of the eight most prevalent chronic health conditions in the World, there is a wide range of diabetes-related mobile applications available to the public to aid in glycaemic control and self-management. Statistically adherence to medication is extremely low in adolescents with Type 1 diabetes mellitus, therefore it is crucial that adolescents adhere to their medication from a young age and adopt good medication regimens. This presentation focuses on the research and design of an interactive and educational concept mobile application aimed at adolescents, aged 11 to 16 years old, to aid in their understanding of Type 1 diabetes mellitus. As the visual elements are an essential part to the design of a mobile application, this research will outline how the visual components of the application were designed specifically for the target audience of adolescents with Type 1 diabetes mellitus
