RapidCalc is proudly supported by GlucoMen in the UK and Ireland
IMPORTANT NOTICE - Feb 2016
We have been informed by Apple that changes to their approvals policy means that "Apps that calculate medicinal dosages must be submitted by the manufacturer of those medications or recognized institutions such as hospitals, insurance companies, and universities". Since we are not such an institution, we are now negotiating with an Australian hospital to allow us to re-submit the application in their name. Apple have allowed us to continue offering the application while we seek an approved Institution to take it over. We hope to have an agreement in place which will allow a seamless transition. Existing users should not be affected by this decision. Please monitor this website for more details.
RapidCalc is a sophisticated bolus insulin dose calculator for diabetics following a basal-bolus regimen. With intelligent tracking of insulin on board, automatic carbohydrate ratio and blood glucose target selection, RapidCalc dramatically simplifies blood glucose management. Complete with basal dose recording, detailed history, charting and statistics features, RapidCalc is designed to be easy to use and easy to live with.
Can’t remember when or how much you last dosed? - Don't worry. RapidCalc avoids dose stacking by keeping track of your doses and factoring in insulin still remaining to act when calculating a suggested dose.
RapidCalc supports up to 6 different target blood glucose levels, correction factors and carbohydrate ratios for different times of day and automatically selects the appropriate values when calculating a suggested dose.
Unique slide-and-tap controls let you enter your blood glucose and carbohydrate values quickly and easily. Simply drag the slider close to your value and then tap on the slider rail to make fine adjustments. As you adjust your values RapidCalc instantly calculates suggested meal and correction insulin doses.
RapidCalc makes it easy to record your basal or background insulin doses with preset dose amounts and reminders.
RapidCalc delivers many of the benefits normally associated with an insulin pump and indeed users describe it as being like "pumping without a pump". Using RapidCalc along with correct basal insulin dosing it is possible to achieve control similar to that of a well set up pump.
Integrated dose adjustment for exercise based on intensity and duration as well as compensation for recent hypos or alcohol.
RapidCalc effectively replaces your log book with a full 90-day history of blood glucose readings, insulin doses and carbohydrate intake which can be exported via email for archive or analysis. Built-in charts and summary statistics help you assess your blood glucose control, identify trends and even estimate your HbA1c.
After initial setup under the guidance of your healthcare professional, RapidCalc will always be at hand: quick, reliable and discrete, whenever and wherever you need it. No Wifi or 3G signal required.
RapidCalc is intended for guidance only and is not a substitute for professional medical advice. Always discuss use of the calculator with your diabetes educator or physician and only use personal settings agreed with them. If you are in any doubt as to the correct insulin dose always follow the advice of your healthcare professional.
