FourTicks is a mobile app for persons living with diabetes. It was conceptualized to take out the complexity of blood sugar management and was designed to simplify adherence to treatment plan. The screen interface of the mobile app is devoid from clutter of information that confuses diabetics even more, and employs a design where users can direct their focus on the 4 ticks of diabetes self-care activities: taking medication, limiting carb intake, staying hydrated and keeping physically active. The data logs made by the persons with diabetes are also made useful to doctors, with the use of efficient data visualization. With FourTicks, doctors will be able to get valuable insights to HbA1c test results. The app is full of functionalities and includes an injection site tracker and schedulers / reminders.
Every prick tells a story. The notes feature allows users to jot down important details surrounding a blood sugar reading, like symptoms , timing and other small but circumstantial details. As everyone's body is unique and works differently, the notes and references will help user understand how his body works with medication, certain types of food, stress and activity.
