Helsinki, Finland (PRWEB UK) 10 February 2015
Imagine this: Diabetic kids with ideal blood glucose levels. Parents informed of their results automatically in real-time. All results stored on secure cloud service, connecting the family with the healthcare team. How?
With the world’s first motivational and Angry Birds™ themed Modz blood glucose meter. With Modz, children will finally want to measure consistently and thus achieve improved blood glucose (BG) values. Points and rewards make measuring exciting and reminders help them to be consistent. Parents stay up-to-date with both e-mail and text message notifications and a web-based monitoring and analytics system.
Diabetes is caused by a hormone (insulin) deficiency in your body. Without the hormone you cannot survive. Diabetics need to inject the hormone daily. The right amount of insulin is determined by monitoring blood glucose level on a regular basis (4-12 times/day).
The UK has the world’s fifth highest rate of Type 1 diabetes (T1D) in children aged up to 14 and over 29,000 children in the UK have T1D. Fortunately, the future of diabetes self-care is now here: Modz is finally available in the UK and throughout Europe.
As studies show, the more frequently the BG is measured, the easier it is for diabetics to reach and maintain a good HbA1c value.
“We're extremely excited to help motivate diabetic children and young adults to live healthier lives. Modz makes the link between frequent measuring and feeling good very concrete. The meter fosters self-care and helps juveniles become independent,” says Modz CEO Vesa Kemppainen.
Take for example thirteen year old Max with a HbA1c of 75 (9%). Within just two months Max was able to lower the level to 56 (7.3%). The most exciting thing, for Max, was achieving higher game levels with the Angry Birds themed game-like monitoring system.
