Survey on accessibility of technology for the management of diabetes

A research project at Swansea University is looking at the accessibility of technology to manage diabetes in people with sight loss.

Researchers would like to ask people with diabetes and some degree of sight loss about their perspective on the subject, asking in particular if they have experienced any difficulties in using or accessing these sort of technologies. The sight loss does not have to be due to diabetes. The key aims of the survey are to:

  • To understand the valuable perspectives of people with diabetes and sight loss about the accessibility of technology for diabetes management.
  • To try and identify any barriers that may prevent people with sight loss using technology to manage their diabetes.
