Cellnovo’s diabetes management system has been selected for inclusion in a three-year project funded by European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, which is aimed at investigating new technologies to help improve the lives of people with Type 1 diabetes.
The project, named PEPPER (Patient Empowerment through Predictive Personalised decision support), has a budget of nearly EUR 4 million and brings together leading UK and European universities and companies to research and develop technology that will help to improve the self-management of people with Type 1 diabetes. Researchers working on the project will use Cellnovo’s diabetes management system to create a personalised decision support system that will make predictions based on real-time data in order to empower individuals to self-manage their condition. The design of the system will involve patients, clinicians and carers at every stage to ensure that it meets user needs.
The project, led by Oxford Brookes University, will run until January 2019. Speaking on behalf of the university, Clare Martin comments: “We believe that better use of data and technology has the power to improve health, transforming the quality and reducing the cost of health and care services. Cellnovo’s innovative technology, empowering diabetes patients to accurately self-manage their condition, fits perfectly with the overall aim of the PEPPER project.”
