Our vision is to create one roof for all information and support needs for the type 1 diabetic community in Israel. Redefining the experience of finding knowledge and connecting.
Our platform, in the phone application form, is destined to serve the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in Israel, an affiliate of the international leading type 1 diabetes organization.
The Type one diabetes community in Israel consists of nearly 50,000 diagnosed diabetics ranging in ages from toddlers to third age. The members experience rich and varied lifestyles, some taking part in sports, some travel – all the while having to deal with an abundance of bureaucratic and medical hurdles, creating a world of solutions and know-hows.
Beyond the members themselves each brings in a circle of friends and relatives, all now part of this expanding Type one family. Several of the most active participants in the community are actually not diabetics but close relatives such as parents to a diabetic child.
To its pride this community of nearly 50,000 is a sharing one: dozens of social network groups are open and flooded with questions and tips, doctors and specialists hosting digital forums and chats, and above all else is the JDRF support, representing and creating important content to reach its members.
But this fragmentation of information makes it so difficult for a single person to have all the tools available out there. As each bit of information is only useful for a particular step in life, we want to have that information right when we need it.
Type1 is a platform designed to be the new home for convenient communication for the Diabetic community, through the personalization of information and utilizing the community as a whole to make the knowledge as accessible as can be.
The Type1 App features a social network focusing on showing you only the information relevant to you, customized for the profile you build. This information is then digested down to easy-to-use reminders, sticky-notes, and calendar events that are made for you with no action required, redefining the experience of finding knowledge and connecting.

The project is a social network information platform, implemented as a phone application.
In the process of creating an app we engage with user experience and back-end storage and processing, based in the cloud.
Back-end is designed to allow access from any phone, utilizing Google’s FireBase services for creation of a profile and information database. The profile database is dynamically linked, with an intricate tagging system, to the information that will be stored by administrators and users to the information database.
Additionally, there is use of shared preferences to allow for local storage of profile information on the user’s device for a fast continuous experience, with features such as remember-me when logging in.
Back-end is in late development stage and ready to allow for first demo entry to the market.
Front-end UI/UX design was expertly orchestrated by a group of 11 interactive design student and the course’s instructor. Finally after 2 stages of presentation to the JDRF and a group of design experts, a winning design was chosen, and a wonderful designer with it joined the project’s team.
The design was created using Adobe xd, starting from thematic idea color palate and logo to a full vision-app user experience.
Front-end on the user side is fully complete and being adapted to the Back-end on a limited options demo version. Some administrator side design will be required.
As far as market readiness goes, first trial adopters from the JDRF are eager to experience the demo version of the app and give appropriate feedback.
Our destination goal is to advance the project to the next step of alpha version, with an ability to create active users that post content.
