DIAmate: Your Friend in Diabetes Management

A collaborative initiative between GEElab Melbourne and the Charles Perkins Centre at University of Sydney, DIAmate is a gameful approach to enhancing diabetes type 2 patient compliance with treatment regimes.

The trailer animation and early prototypes have been developed as a gameful smartphone companion application addressing issues of isolation, medication, exercise, understanding and self-esteem.

Utilising social networking mechanisms and game thinking, users interface with the virtual DIAmate world through real time activities and connections with other users.
