Diabetes and its complications cost the NHS 10% of the annual budget -- £25,000 per minute. We believe active intervention and self-management can slow this down before they experience symptoms.
What it does
It is an app that takes patient input data to calculate the users' risk of complications and use VR to create an immersive environment to visualise the progression of complications/symptoms for better understanding than what doctor can deliver verbally.
How we built it
We designed the general flow of the app using Indigo Studio and created the VR image for the progression visualisation using Unity.
Challenges we ran into
None of us have used Unity before, therefore it took us quite a while to get familiar with the engine.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We built a 3D environment that mimics the progressive change of the diabetic eye disease.
What we learned
We learned to create 3D objects from scratch using Unity, and are more familiar with Indigo Studio.
What's next for Know Your Diabetes
Make more visualisations for different consequences of Diabetes, for instance, amputation of legs.
