Educational apps help kids take control of their health
from CTV News
Reflecting a trend of gamification, a growing number of apps are designed to help kids learn to manage their health, tackling subjects such as diabetes, asthma and even psychological aspects of growing up. Sanofi Diabetes, a division of Sanofi-Aventis, launched an app in the U.K. oriented towards kids with type 1 diabetes and their friends, parents and caregivers called Mission T1D. The setting is a virtual school in which players earn their knowledge when they win enough points to unlock short, easy-to-remember tips about living with type 1 diabetes and in some cases shareable, educational videos.
