Babble is a disease management application. Voice User Interface app for individuals that suffer from Metabolic Syndrome. Metabolic Syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. Babble allows individuals to track and improve their health or a family members health. Babble aims to demystify healthcare and cure the stigma of it all. You are not alone.

We developed and conducted a comprehensive online questionnaire and surveyed people regarding the ways In which they would want to interact with a mobile application to treat chronic health conditions. The survey assessed 3 aspects of health management: 1) interest in a particular health topic for tracking information,
2) setting goals related to that topic, and 3) receiving reminders. The following populations were surveyed: mTurk workers, Texas State Faculty and students (stratified by age to examine age-related differences). The survey assessed whether participants wanted to share their health data or their health goals with others, either friends/family or anonymous app users, and/or receive support from friends/family or app users.
