According to international studies, the number of people with diabetes on the globe will soon reach 500 million. In Ukraine, this figure has exceeded one million people. Insulin-dependent patients are forced to constantly monitor the administration of insulin, time and quality of food, glucose levels and physical activity. They are under constant fear of falling into a diabetic coma. Each insulin dependent diabetic has a special diary that is controlled by a doctor. This diary is vital.
Dia Safe Life is a software package for insulin dependent patients that aims to simplify the lives of such patients and enable them to more effectively monitor condition of health. Dia Safe Life helps: to predict the condition of a possible nocturnal hypoglycemia, keep a diabetic diary and consult a doctor via your personal portal account. At the moment, there is already a working prototype of the mobile application, designing of web-portal is underway.
Dia Safe Life is an international project. By combined efforts it is executed by scientists from Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences - Professor Serhii Pereverzev and PhD Pavlo Tkachenko with scientists from Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute - Yevheniia Sulema, Associate Professor of the Computer Systems Software Department and Ph.D. in Technical Sciences Lesia Liushenko, senior lecturer of FPM, certified project management expert (IPMA, level A - Certified Project Director). The students of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics completed the development of the mobile application.
The participants of the Dia Safe Life project strive to develop and improve the program complex and express their gratitude to the organizers of the Sikorsky Challenge startup contest, which won the financial support from the Presidential Fund of Leonid Kuchma "Ukraine". They believe "This festival inspires us for future innovation develpments, that will make our lives better,".
