Today, the Republic of Korea (ROK) is battling with diabetes which is being increasingly found not only in the elderly but also in young people due to the westernized eating habits. Hyperglycemia being its main cause, this disease is closely associated with one’s lifestyle such that it is the most important task for diabetic patients to improve their lifestyles to recover from this disease or improve its symptoms. This is the study of a convenience program for improving the lifestyles of diabetic patients from the software engineering point of view. The designed software allows the patient to recognize the relationship between sugar level and treatment plan and recommends an adequate treatment measure by providing relevant information through push notification service in accordance with the patient’s condition. This study aims to assist patients to prevent or treat diabetes by themselves and change their lifestyles properly.

The 4D Health Care Project Group of Catholic University of Pusan aims to cultivate the creative talent who have capabilities in developing 4D contents required for rehabilitation and health care of modern people. Both Department of Physical Therapy and Department of Software of this university are participating and operating the group jointly to perform the task.

The 4D Health Care refers to an advance health care technology which is used for the operation in a 4D-based mixed reality where human senses, cognition and experiences (1D) have been converged with both real and virtual information (3D) and the project group runs various curricular and extracurricular programs to train every participating student to acquire a 4D technology-based health care contents development skills.

This has been written with the support of the 4D Health Care Project Group and the author wishes to express his gratitude to the Ministry of Education, National Research Foundation of Korea, as well as the CK Project Group. And this paper is the product of a team project performed in “Advanced Java Programing” Course at Dept. of Software, Catholic University of Pusan for the undergraduates. Also, my gratitude extends to Catholic University of Pusan and the Lord who has provided me with his wisdom and grace.
