Feltman is a teaching tool that can be used by health professionals to help explain what happens in the body of someone who has diabetes. Feltman® is a life size felt mat, in the shape of a human body and shows the systems and organs relating to diabetes. The tool can be used with individuals and community groups, as a one-way demonstration or as a two-way interactive workshop. It is perfect for audiences which learn best in a visual way or for whom English is not their first language.
