Izworski Andrzej, Koleszynska Joanna, Tadeusiewicz Ryszard

Abstract

This paper presents renewed approach to the computer-aided diabetes educations introducing GIGISim (Glucose-Insulin and Glycemic Index Web Simulator) e-learning tool. Together with our system, selected solutions were summarized and their functionality compliance with diabetes therapy requirements checked. The analysis of diabetes patients needs has been established through a series of intermediate research surveys and literature studies. The software implementation of newly proposed innovations is presented together with effectiveness and suitability rate of a system, prior to the identified requirements.
