CDiC1 India has developed a unique, interactive and enjoyable way to help children with diabetes and their caretakers better understand how to manage diabetes.
Based on the traditional game of “snakes and ladders”, the app invites players to help Mishti (a character with type 1 diabetes used in patient education materials in the CDiC programme) reach the top of the board. Players have to click on the “roll a dice” icon, and answer a question related to diabetes. Correct answers allow Mishti to move forward and climb up the ladder, while wrong answers make her slip down a few squares.
The game requires an active internet connection and is available online at http://cdicindia.org/snake_ladder/ .
