Nemaura Medical Launches BEAT®diabetes Smartphone App on Android and iOS Platforms; Begins Pilot Distribution of proBEAT™ Sensors
Loughborough, England – April 13, 2021 (GlobeNewswire) – Nemaura Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: NMRD) (“Nemaura” or the “Company”), a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing non-invasive wearable diagnostic devices and supporting personalized lifestyle coaching programs, today announced the launch of its BEAT®diabetes app on the GooglePlay and iOS platforms.
The BEATdiabetes app, which is publicly available through the Google Play store and Apple’s app store provides predictive information that supplies the user suggestions such as smart eating choices, exercise and other potential lifestyle changes over the long term based on information provided by the user. It also features continuous one-on-one support through its AI avatar, Lena, who learns about user habits and regularly becomes more familiar with each user. As new information is processed, Lena offers feedback and encouragement as well as helpful ideas to help users not only improve their health, but potentially reverse Type 2 diabetes. The program is based on an in-clinic program originally developed and validated at the Joslin Diabetes Centre.
The Company is also beginning pilot programs that include its proprietary proBEAT™ monitor, a non-invasive, daily-wear glucose monitoring patch, synced with the BEAT®diabetes program. proBEAT™ is a flexible wear patch, which provides feedback and actionable insights to users to better understand how diet and lifestyle adjustments might impact blood glucose fluctuations, empowering its users with knowledge that can lead to smarter decisions and improved overall health and wellbeing.
“We believe that the BEAT®diabetes app offers a significant new path toward better lifestyle management with the overall aim of providing a better tool for improved management and potential reversal of Type 2 diabetes,” commented Dr. Faz Chowdhury, Nemaura’s Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, we believe our pilot program which includes our proBEAT™ non-invasive glucose sensor ushers in a new era in the development of life management tools that have been scientifically validated and utilize a personalized coaching method that combines a digital platform with data from a unique non-invasive device. We have initially adopted a business-to-business model and are actively exploring a range of options for broad distribution of this combined program through U.S. insurers and employee wellness programs. The sensor technology provides us with a unique position in this market, at a competitive price point. We look forward to discussing further distribution of the proBEAT™ monitor and associated programs as we progress our commercial initiatives.”
