Expanding Toby's T1D Tale: Using Design to Engage Youth in T1D Education

Insulet is the maker of Omnipod, a wearable insulin delivery system for people who insist life comes first. The company’s recently released iPad app, Toby’s T1D Tale, is designed to educate newly diagnosed children with type 1 diabetes as well as their friends, family members, and caregivers about diabetes and diabetes management. The goal of the 2016-2017 Insulet SCOPE project was to employ a user-oriented design methodology to improve the user experience of the application through new features and gamification.
