Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a chronic disease that is currently incurable and affects millions of people of all ages and backgrounds. Patients with T1D must monitor their blood sugar levels several times a day and dose their insulin injections correctly, anticipating the combined effects of physical activity, food, emotions, medication, fatigue, travel, etc. Insulin therapy therefore requires a permanent mental load for patients and their loved ones, especially for partners or parents of diabetic children.
Therapeutic patient education
TPE is the process of promoting the acquisition of skills necessary for appropriate and safe self-management of the disease. TPE have been scientifically validated and have been shown to be effective in reducing patient complications. Unfortunately, current TPE systems are expensive, reach a small number of patients, and their beneficial effects tend to disappear after 2 to 4 years. By adapting TPE to the online world, we overcome these issues.
An online course, made of 60+ short videos and as many animated summaries, addresses all the major issues related to the disease and its daily management.
Calibrated exercises and sharing
A mobile app allows patients to perform calibrated exercises and record blood glucose levels and activity under different experimental conditions. They can participate in group challenges.
