Abstract

A simulation device (1) for playful evaluation and display of blood sugar levels. The evaluation is displayed by means of a virtual creature (6).

Description

Simulation device for playful evaluation and display of

evaluate blood glucose

The invention relates to simulation devices for playful evaluation and display of blood glucose values.

Diabetics are held several times to check their blood glucose levels daily. This is done by self-withdrawal of blood, which is applied to a glucose test strip, the measuring strip is connected to the measuring and display device and the result of measurement is displayed finally.

A disadvantage of the known systems is the low interactivity, as well as insufficient visual, tactile and audible representation of the individual measurement results and the evaluation of the measurement results obtained.

The object of the invention is to convey the information of the individual measurement results and the evaluation results in multiple measurement result in visual, haptic and acoustic appealing, more playful, kind to the patient.

The invention solves the problem with a simulation apparatus having a virtual creature, which communicates with the user in various ways, the evaluation and with the user by characters, speech or other acoustic signals, vibration, change in temperature, the size, the shape or color interacts, as well as change the behavior of the virtual creature.

In this case, the inventive simulation apparatus comprises a housing and a display device, for example in the form of a graphic LCD displays, on. Over a

may be mounted input device which is mounted directly on the housing or on a separate device thereof, the user enters his blood glucose values ​​in a memory, evaluation and control unit, such as a microchip, for storage of the values. Of course, there may be separate units here also. The values ​​inputted is analyzed by the chip with a stored evaluation method and evaluated. Depending on the result, the device will communicate the results of the evaluation and the measured result in a playful manner to the user. Preferably, the display of the evaluation with the help of a virtual creature 6, which mediated by characters, speech or other acoustic signals change in size, shape or color, or change in attitude or change in its behavior, the evaluation is carried out.

According to a further aspect of the invention, which can also be used together or independently of the above-described simulation apparatus, the transfer is made the evaluation of the measured values ​​in the form of a heating or cooling the entire device or only a part thereof. The cooling or heating is carried out by means of a common cooling or heating element.

Also, several of the mentioned parameters simultaneously or one after the show by changing the evaluation and communicate.

To operate the device even at night it preferably has a light-emitting diode.

The inventive device can also be integrated into a PC, a mobile bags PC or a mobile phone.

In a further embodiment of the inventive device, the measured values ​​are transmitted directly from a blood sugar measuring device to the simulation device. The advantage of this solution is that here no measured values ​​must be read from the measuring system and then entered into the simulation device via a keyboard. The transfer of data from the measuring system for the simulation device is also done either wirelessly or wire.

In a further embodiment of the simulation device is integrated into a conventional blood glucose measurement system.

In another embodiment, the inventive device has a special design and / or choice of material of the housing; is, for example, integrates the device into a teddy bear, this could increase the acceptance of the simulation device for children.

All simulation devices can be controlled also, that not only individual blood glucose value inputs change the display parameters, but by storing the longer-term health situation is shown, for example, each bent the virtual creature is displayed, the worse is the average of the measured values ​​of the last month of several values.

Also, the user insufficient discipline can be represented very good, the stronger eg the virtual creature discolored reddish, the undisciplined blood glucose values ​​are transmitted to the simulation device. Insofar as the simulation device may be referred to as a monitoring device.

Next, the behavior of the virtual creature can be changed by setting parameters. For example, the number could interactions per day of virtual being with the diabetics are set.

Preferred embodiments of the inventive device are described below with the aid of figures, wherein the figures represent the following:

Fig. 1 is a schematic representation of the inventive device simulation; FIG. 2a is a schematic representation of the inventive simulation device with external input keyboard;

FIG. 2b shows a schematic representation of the inventive simulation apparatus and an external blood glucose measuring system;

Fig. 3 is a schematic representation of the inventive simulation device integrated into a blood glucose measurement system.

As shown in FIG. 1, the inventive simulation device, a housing 1, a display device 2, for example in the form of a graphical LCD display, and an "on / off" or "reset" button 3. Via the keyboard 4, which may be mounted directly on the housing, the user enters his blood glucose values ​​in a memory, evaluation and control unit 5, for example, a microchip for storage of values. The entered values ​​will now be analyzed by the chip 5 with a stored evaluation method and evaluated. Depending on the result, the device communicates to the user the result of the evaluation and the measured result. Preferably, the display of the evaluation with the help of a virtual creature is carried out 6. Acoustic signals are generated by means of signal generators. 8 It is also possible to evaluate by means of a (not shown) heating / cooling element display. Also possible is a display by a (not shown) vibrating element.

To operate the device even at night it preferably has a light-emitting diode. 7

Fig. 2a shows a further embodiment of the inventive device. The input keyboard is connected via wireless communication or by means of wires, with the evaluation and display device. FIG. 2b shows a further embodiment of the inventive device in which the measured values, wirelessly or by wires, to the with illustrated gauges 10 to the simulation device of a blood glucose meter 9.

Fig. 3 shows a further embodiment in which the simulation device is integrated into a conventional blood glucose measurement system.
