DIY for patients

DIY - Do It Yourself. This is exactly what some patients do, when they are not happy with existing tools or health services.

If you do a search with the phrases "we are not waiting" or "nightscout" on the internet, you will find a social community of innovative people.

They are not pleased with the tools or health services that exist, and create, re-invent and improve hardware and software. It is not only patients with diabetes that have started DIY-projects. They all use social media to interact and get information on the latest development.

Our "Pop Up Scientist" this time is professor Eirik Årsand. Check out the video below.
