GlucoGear is developing a predictive model for Blood Glucose Level (BGL) in partnership with researchers from USP and ITA. The idea is that Diabetic patients would input their data in an app (available for iOS and Android devices) and the app – through artificial intelligence and machine learning – would be able to predict the BGL in up to 8 hours, helping patients to avoid hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia events.
