Patients develops app to manage diabetes

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2017-07-03 14:08

About the solution

The app consists of a diabetes companion, having several features:

• mySugr Scanner (instantly sends blood glucose readings from the meter into mySugr app);
• mySugr Academy (type 2 diabetes education. Tips and easy steps to help the user feelling happy and healthy);
• mySugr Analysis (spot trends and patterns in the users’ numbers. Maximizes results by identifying weak spots in the therapy and focuses on effective changes);
• mySugr Importer (instantly synchronizes data from the FreeStyle Libre or Medtronic CGM into mySugr App with the mySugr Web Importer);
• Coach (roactive help from highly trained CDEs; personalized advice anytime, anywhere; analysis of data).

The app is free and is available for iOS and Android.

“MySugr is really all about motivating people with diabetes to stay engaged with their therapy, because diabetes therapy can be really really boring and a lot of people are not engaged. And we want to help them. Now I am also my own doctor. With all of these data, I can get better insights about my own condition”, Frank explained.

Frank founded his own company, 2012, which was acquired by Roche in 2017.
