Monstrous Diabetic Games

Monster Manor Encourages Diabetic Kids To Record Blood Glucose Levels

— February 11, 2015 — Tech
Monster Manor is a mobile game, launched by Sanofi Diabetes, that is designed to encourage children with Type 1 diabetes to keep tabs on their blodo glucose levels.

The game was developed as part of a collaboration with Vancouver-based Ayog, and rewards children with Type 1 diabetes for checking their blood glucose regularly. The game consists of different levels that add up, enabling players to unlock special characters and features. The results of the game are sent automatically to the smartphones of parents, who can give rewards to the children directly through the game.

Monster Manor has proven to be a fun game for children, however the fun aspect is only the means to an end, which is of course improved health. With young children forced to take on responsibility for testing and logging their blood glucose levels, this game is the kind of initiative that's needed to help children stay on top of their treatment.

Trend Themes
1. Mobile Health Games - Developing mobile games that incentivize health-related behaviors can help children with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, effectively manage their treatment.
2. Gamification for Self-care - Applying gamification techniques to self-care tasks, like blood glucose monitoring, can motivate children to maintain consistent health behaviors and improve treatment outcomes.
3. Remote Health Monitoring - Utilizing technology to remotely monitor health data, such as blood glucose levels, allows parents to stay informed and involved in their children's treatment process.
Industry Implications
1. Healthcare - The healthcare industry can explore the development of interactive games and gamified applications to support the self-care needs of patients, especially those with chronic conditions.
2. Mobile App Development - The mobile app development industry can focus on creating engaging and educational games that integrate health tracking features to promote positive health behaviors.
3. Parental Monitoring Technology - The parental monitoring technology industry can develop innovative tools and platforms that enable parents to remotely monitor and reward their children's health-related activities.
