APPS & MANAGERS

Dap'n

Dap'n is a game design to help with

diabetes health management especially

in relation to taking medication (medical

adherence). The aim is simply to get fun

animations, called daps, once you've

completed a challenge around selfmanagement. Dap'n gathers up your own

support network including friends, family

and specialists to make the process

of living with diabetes fun, personal

and engaging. It also provides an extra

support mechanism when needed.

This app mock-up has been designed

by Reina Yaidoo as project manager,

Euphemia Yaidoo, who has diabetes,

software developer Adam Buckley with

Bassel Anjoukeh looking after user

Experience. Since winning the recent

Diabetes app challenge, Dap'n has been

part of Mobilise the NHS, an event which

enabled the prototype of Dap'n to be

explored for uses in aiding better control

of juvenile diabetes.

Dap'n was originally created for adult

users, however clinicians and specialists

from the diabetes section of Bolton NHS

Foundation Trust found Dap'n extremely

versatile for use with young people and is

now working with the Dap'n team to aid

content creation. The team is looking for

funding to develop the app.
