Happy Bob turns diabetes management into rewarding and positive experiences

Our mission

We want to help kids with diabetes to succeed in daily diabetes care by providing positive and rewarding experiences for managing own health. We do this by combining gamification and real-time, personal health data available through sensors and wearables, creating a rewarding loop that turns diabetes management into opportunities of fun moments and better health.

DDC 2019 Finalist

Happy Bob was selected as a finalist in the Digital Diabetes Congress 2019 Mobile App Contest as an app for children with T1D. It rewards and motivates in daily diabetes care in a positive and personalised way. Good diabetes care during childhood years is crucial for later health. We believe gamification should be more used with medical conditions and especially with children with type 1 diabetes.

 

How does it work?

Happy Bob reads your real-time CGM data and predicts your future blood sugar based on your CGM history. Keeping blood sugar within target let’s you collect stars, which can be used to purchase rewards you have set up yourself and which your parents have approved.

Features

Get advice and predictions

Happy Bob follows your blood sugar curve and notifies you with a personal message, if your sugar is predicted to drop or get too high. You can also always get a personal prediction for your future blood sugar, which is calculated every five minutes based on your own historical CGM data.

Get social

Do you have a friend with diabetes you want to share your top star scores with? You can connect and share your star scores with other kids with type 1 diabetes if you want to have friendly star battles.

Follow your progress

Follow your diabetes data in a fun format and see how big percent of your days blood sugar stays within target and how you are doing now compared to the previous week.

Coming soon: Get rewarded

Create your wishlist, get your parents to approve it and collect Happy Bob stars by keeping blood sugar within own target and by taking the actions managing diabetes requires, like changing sensor or remembering insulin. With the stars you collect, you can then retrieve your rewards your parents have committed to.

"The curiosity of a child is the curiosity of a scientist. With Happy Bob we want to encourage you and your children to handle diabetes in a fun and easy way.”
