Special attention must be given to glucometer design, selection, and training for older adults with diabetes. The field of human factors provides insight into the special needs of older adults along with principles of design and instruction to apply to current and future glucometer systems. Necessary tools for designers and physicians include person analysis, user testing, and adherence to best practice guidelines. It is important to note that as glucometer systems change, new usability problems may arise as prior issues are resolved. However, some problems may be avoided prior to system production by using the theoretical background and guidelines provided by human factors specialists.
