Glucose Vision

Diabetes management at your fingertips.

The Details

Diabetes is the 6th leading cause of death in Canada, and affects over 3 million people; daily this number grows by 549 new cases. Diabetes patients often manage their condition via a combination of food intake and insulin. This method can cause blood glucose levels to fluctuate due to uncertainty in food portions consumed and can lead to severe illness. Glucose Vision aims to reduce the development of future illness by offering the first smartphone application capable of pre-evaluating meal portions with the snap of a pic.  By employing AI, we will be able to calculate an accurate carb count based on portion size and recommend the amount of insulin required. Our solution will revolutionize how patients manage their condition, and allow users to maintain consistent and healthier blood sugar levels.
