Join us for a day of tinkering, exploring, and building with HealthDesignBy.Us and the Nightscout community!
Some Background on Our Design Challenge
We are experimenting with a wearable, interactive display of an individual’s continuous glucose monitoring diabetes data. Our prototype displays average blood sugar per hour through a 24 hour cycle. The display uses a Neopixel LED ring that is programmable with Arduino’s software platform.
What We Need
Patients and Caregivers with T1D:
The prototype is totally configurable; how do you want to display your data? What other ways can we use color, timing, and movement to show patterns? What other prototypes do you want to create (i.e. LED displays, strips)? Help us come up with more designs that are useful, attractive, and make it easy to understand your data trends.
Nightscout Community Members:
If you are a Nightscout user, are you interested in helping with programming and/or importing your data into the wearable? How can we interface the Nightscout data with the prototype code?
You can help us create the code for the Arduino prototype, or help us write code to get data from a Nightscout database to remotely display on the wearable prototype in real-time!
