Here at Gendius, we’re on a constant mission to improve the daily lives of diabetics.
We understand the struggles, worries and anxiety that comes with your diagnosis and we want to be there to help and guide you in a clear, manageable way and to recognise your symptoms and tackle them before they begin to interfere with your day to day life. Which brings us to the next step, metaphorically speaking.
We are running a study to test the effect that our app, Intellin, has when used in accordance with monitoring your diabetes and the self-referral/ prevention of Diabetic Foot Ulcers.
Our goal is always to engage you in our app, to immerse and educate where possible and through this, to ensure that you can take care of yourself and your diabetes in equal turn.
One of the results of mismanaged diabetes can be Diabetic Foot Ulcers and with recent studies showing that a large percentage of diabetics do not achieve healthy standards for HbA1c, BP and cholesterol, we’re striving to reduce the numbers and to get your diabetics back on healthier ground!
Day by day we’re striving to help you tackle the causes of Diabetic Foot Ulcers and to take healthy, preventative measure wherever possible.
So, what does this require from our potential participants? It’s simple. Just download our app and in the time it takes you to tie your shoelaces, you’ll have a simple, straightforward means by which to track, manage and aid your diabetic daily life right in your pocket!
We want to hear how Intellin works for you in terms of usability for diabetics and as a result of this, whether those with DFU (diabetic foot ulcers) see, track and self-refer to professional help when using Intellin in relation to their condition.
On the subject of ulcers, we want to see whether (and if so, how many times) the participants ulcer re-occurs during the study, as well as changes in blood pressure measurements, blood test results, medication and so on.
We also want to know how many of our participants would recommend Intellin to another diabetic, how often you use Intellin, how many of you are uncomfortable with using the app and how Intellin has improved the participants understanding overall of diabetes and most importantly, how Intellin has improved your general quality of life.
Finally, we want to know how many of you will complete the NICE 8 point annual checks and can therefore improve on the current national average of 60%.
