DDC 2019 Finalist
Happy Bob was selected as a finalist in the Digital Diabetes Congress 2019 Mobile App Contest . Happy Bob rewards and motivates in daily diabetes care in a positive and personalised way. Good diabetes care and stable blood glucose is crucial for later health. We believe gamification should be more used with medical conditions and with type 1 diabetes.
How does it work?
Happy Bob connects to the continuous glucose monitor (CGM) diabetics use and based on each person’s historical CGM data and current reading, estimates the future blood glucose for up to two hours ahead. The prediction is re-calculated every 5 minutes when we get a new glucose reading. Based on the glucose reading and prediction, Happy Bob notifies the user to help keeping blood sugar stable and rewards the user when his personal glucose targets are met.
