DIY Diabetes Management Technology With Raspberry Pi

screen-shot-2014-11-26-at-11-20-35-am

Wired has a fascinating article about diabetics who are building and modifying devices to better manage their disease.  Although many advancements have been made in commercial diabetes management technology, many diabetics are frustrated with the slow pace of change and are taking things into their own hands to build their own devices to manage the disease.  Some of these tools include cloud-based applications for parents to monitor their children’s blood sugar levels while at school, or even a Raspberry Pi-based device to monitor and regulate insulin levels directly just like the body’s pancreas!  It’s amazing to see a community of people who are empowered to make their lives better through DIY and maker technology.

Diabetes Patients Are Hacking Their Way Toward a Bionic Pancreas


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
