Software designed to help children who are newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes learn how to manage their condition is available from dbaza, Inc., of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for use by both individuals and professionals.
A CD-ROM titled Diabetes Education for Kids "follows the guidelines of the American Diabetes Association and presents basic principles of diabetes care in practical ways," the company explains in a news release. "Children use a computer to practice their skills to test blood-glucose levels, administer insulin injections, plan meals and recognize the interrelationship among blood-glucose levels and insulin, food and physical activity."
Joelle Escoffery, PhD, senior research coordinator for dbaza, said that the software is designed for newly diagnosed children between the ages of 8 and 13, although field tests at a diabetes camp indicated that children outside that age range and those who have had diabetes for some time also benefited from using the program.
The company is promoting a special price of $75.95 for individual use, with a mail-in rebate of $20. Prices for institutional licensing depend on the number of anticipated users. The CD-ROM can be ordered from dbaza's online store at www.dbaza.com or by calling toll-free (866) 322-9286.
