Customizable IVR Technology for Diabetes Patients in the Global South

The project introduced the idea of customizable IVR technologies that will benefit Diabetic patients with mechanisms that facilitate making care-plans to improve their lives using IVR technology. Since each Diabetic patient has a different lifestyle, the current design of IVR technology is unable to cater for their differences appropriately. In this project, through various forms of Participatory Design, these patients were allowed to build their own tailored form of IVR technologies that helped them search for solely their required information. This enabled them to manage their disease and ultimately lead more fulfilled lives.
