Hi guys, fellow type one diabetic here. I'm currently a final year master's student studying Cyberpsychology. I am recruiting participants for my thesis.

Background research: There is quite a substantial amount of research indicating that medical devices score quite poorly on usability, meaning that people who use them don't find them particularly user-friendly. This also includes glucometers. Additionally, its been found that individuals with T1D experience moderate levels of distress regardless of what type of glucometers is being used. The purpose of this research is to examine the differences between diabetes-related distress based on the type of glucometer used, and how the glucometers could be designed to reduce distress from the perspective of individuals with T1D.

You must be over 18 to participate and have an official T1D diagnosis. The survey takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. Participation is voluntary of course, but would help contribute to the knowledge of healthcare technology design!

You can access the survey here.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at N00150733@iadt.ie. Thank you in advance! :)

This study has been approved by @Josh DUK.

Done. However the last question asked for further comments but only permitted the response to be numeric! so you may want to fix that.
Good luck with your studies

@k_atie97 What is Gender? I don’t have one - how should I answer? Do you mean Sex?
It’s not clear exactly what information is being gathered and why.
