Abstract or Description:

This paper details the development of a Digital App to assist patients who are newly diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in making the lifestyle adjustments required to maintain their health. It was developed over the course of a semester long project in a graduate level Industrial Design studio class. The instructional goals were to introduce and refine skills related to collaboration with industry professionals, research and analysis from multiple sources, engagement with end users, and creation of functional prototypes to facilitate user testing and refinement. The nature of the project and the specific project requirements were defined so as to provide proper education of future generations of industrial designers for a more inclusive world.
