 Nintendo Will Reward Children for Glucose Testing

Nintendo Gameboy is now being made the focus of ensuring that kids with type 1 diabetes keep their glucose levels in check.

A plug-in gizmo called the Didget has been designed by Bayer, which opens up new levels in Nintendo games if kids keep up with their sugar level checks regularly. The device gives rewards when the children get blood glucose test results within their personalised target range.

The device will be available only in the US and UK and may cost $60. It was made in collaboration with the parent of a child with type 1 diabetes. The latter saw that his son often lost his blood glucose meter, but almost always found his Nintendo.
