A science-based digital programme for long-term behavioural change, sustainable weight loss and diabetes type 2 prevention.

A digital companion to help preventing diabetes Type 2

PROBLEM

According to the WHO, more than 400 million adults suffer from diabetes worldwide, the majority being type 2 diabetes patients. A total of 1.9 billion adults are overweight, which is a common cause of Type 2 diabetes. The numbers have more than tripled since the 1970s and some countries spend 10% of their annual healthcare budgets on diabetes or related conditions.

SOLUTION

Second Nature combines behavioral science with digital technologies to help patients change their habits and take back control of their health. Used by UK’s national health service (“NHS”) the App tracks, measures, and educates users on nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress, and well-being. Long term studies confirmed the program’s efficiency to lose weight permanently.
