CADA uses smartphones to reach and educate elderly diabetics about the condition, in remote areas of China. It has advice on physical activity, weight, diet and monitoring of glucose and blood pressure. Patients are trained to enter and send data on key indicators such as glucose, which doctors can track and graphically display.
