Abstract

Abstract—The diagnosis and management of Diabetes type 1 (Children diabetes) is often a complicated process. Recent mobile health technologies are increasingly used in improving the selfmanagement of chronic diseases such as diabetes and several studies have proven its efficiency. Further, research has shown that increased awareness of the disease helps the diabetics to effectively manage their disease and consequently reduce the complications arising due to diabetes. In this paper, an innovative social robotic children diabetes management and educational system for diabetic children in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is presented. The presented system makes use of Aisoy1 v5 robot in parallel with mobile health technologies. The aim of the system is to improve the diabetes type 1 management with children and to empower them with relevant knowledge about disease management to improve their awareness about the disease in Saudi Arabia. The proposed system presented in this paper will be tested and evaluated extensively in a randomized controlled trial in Saudi Arabia. Keywords—m-health; mobile diabetes management; diabetes mellitus; telemedicine; e-health; Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, social robot
