Technical User Interface
This is the “classic” user interface, where the simulation can be configured in many different ways.
Minimalistic User Interface
The second demo is intended to illustrate that the existing code can also be easily tailored to other use cases: Here, the scenario has been almost completely preconfigured (a patient eats a meal) and the operating options have been reduced accordingly. The task is to select the KE factor and the splash-eat distance appropriately.
Simulation without User Interface
The last example shows that the simulator can also be used without a user interface to perform calculations. The evaluation can then be performed using other tools. The following diagram shows the simulation result of a comparative study between the therapy form “Basal rate+Bolus” and “Oref0”. The observation period is two days, during which the virtual patient eats two announced and one unannounced meal. The study was performed with the example
headlessComparativeStudy.js and the graph was subsequently generated with Matlab(R); the complete code is in the repository.
One can see nicely that oref0 (red) compensates for the overdosed meal boluses by temporarily lowering the basal rate, and thus avoids hypoglycemia. The unannounced meal on the second day is also compensated for more quickly by a temporary increase in the basal rate.
