The Adam Bell Foundation

(Charity number 1115093 adambellfoundation.org.uk)

is a small UK charity set up in

memory of Adam Bell, 34, who

died unnecessarily from undiagnosed Type

1 diabetes. They

have made an online video to

raise awareness of the symptoms in memory of the 10 years

since Adam died. The charity

hopes that this tribute video will

save more lives, so pass it on if

you can because, as they say,

awareness saves lives.

Drive, Burton on Trent, DE13

opened by Richard Lane, OBE,

President of Diabetes UK and

there will be speakers from local

GPs and Diabetes UK.

The Health App Challenge was a one-year project that supported patients with diabetes

or pre/post weight loss surgery to design and/or develop their very own health apps

(e.g. mobile app, website or social media) to help manage their condition. Participants

were offered advice from intellectual property experts, technical developers and medical

professionals. Other patients were invited to review existing health apps they had used

to help inform others, and review the Challenge entries to determine a winner.

Five teams entered the Challenge with their unique diabetes apps designs:

• BWell Sugars System, a simple data entry and blood glucose trends tracker design.

• BetterBGs, a clever real-time insulin and food dose advisory system design.

• EasyDiabetes, a useful organiser design with a range of tools specifically for teens.

• Dap'n, a motivational game design for better adherence to medical recommendations.

• Gluco-Drive, a sensible alert design for monitoring blood glucose levels before driving.

Dap'n', the app design by Reina Yaidoo and her team, was chosen as winner of the

contest for its high ratings (5/5) and praise from peer reviewers.

As a key outcome of the project, the team produced a booklet, 'Patient-led

innovation: How to run, take part in and support a Health App Challenge', a combination

of project experiences and information as asked by participants during the Challenge.

It's available at http://goo.gl/i9irzo

As a result of the challenge, there will soon be a new online community area

for networking opportunities between people interested in patient-led health app

development. We will announce that when it's completed and ready to use.

The project team would really like to know your views on this patient-led approach

and on health app development in general, in a very brief, anonymous, 3-question survey.

Everyone is encouraged to complete it HERE -- all feedback is much appreciated.

The Health App Challenge project was run by Plymouth University, funded by the

Intellectual Property Office Fast Forward Competition 2014 and supported by Diabetes

UK, WLSinfo, Handi, and Britain's Nurses.
