Company Overview

Akibah Health is simplifying diabetes management with the world's first smartphone case glucose meter, GluCase.

Problem:

Diabetes is a pandemic. There are 422M people worldwide and 30M in the U.S. who have diabetes. UnitedHealth Group predicts that over half of all American adults will become diabetic or pre-diabetic by 2020. People with diabetes are forced to monitor and manage their condition with devices that are inconvenient, bulky, and unintuitive. Moreover, the data around their condition is not utilized for insights to improve their health.

Solution:

AkibaH's flagship product, GluCase, empowers people with diabetes to live their lives untethered from bulky meters, cables, and testing supplies. GluCase is an all-in-one solution embedded into a smartphone case, seamlessly integrating a glucose monitoring system and a Bluetooth module. Users can view glucose readings in the context of other actionable information (activity, diet, and medications) and receive real-time coaching from their care team via a mobile app, enabling the delivery of better preventative care.

"AkibaH has created not only a product that you can hold in your hand and touch and feel but also an application on the mobile phone that connects to a web service that has what I think are some very sophisticated tools to support the patient's self management and to support their data sharing with their healthcare providers."

"People with diabetes want to be compliant/adherent, but they are just as busy as anyone else, so they will like anything that makes it easier to fit diabetes self-management into the rest of their day. This is a brilliant tool to make it happen."
