The Center for Disease Control has stated that 80% of all heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes incidents, as well as more than 40% of cancer incidents, could be prevented if Americans stopped using tobacco, ate healthier foods, and exercised regularly.
In support of the CDC’s health mission, we are running clinical trials to test solutions to solve the chronic disease problem. Our first trial explored the possibility of treating and reversing the effects of Type II Diabetes. As part of the trial we set out to prove whether we could enable patients in:
- Taking their medication on time, all the time
- Developing eating habits around healthy, appropriately portioned foods
- Exercising more frequently and with greater intensity
- Employing consumer-grade sensors and smart phones to provide just-in-time support
