Research award for the GlucoTab

The GlucoTab won in the category 'commercial applications' for 'Human-Technology-Interface': Read more. The prize was a certificate and 7000 euroes.

The GlucoTab system was developed in REACTION as a workflow and insulin dosing support system for glycaemic management of hospitalised patients with diabetes.

It implements a novel, mobile, tablet-based workflow support system for nurses and physicians at the ward which includes a validated basal/bolus insulin titration protocol (REACTION algorithm) to provide decision support for daily glucose management of patients with diabetes.

In REACTION the GlucoTab system was validated in two clinical trials involving a total of 129 patients. Results show a decrease of the mean blood glucose, no increase of hypoglycaemic events and a high user acceptance. The GlucoTab system was CE marked in November 2013 and can now be used in a clinical routine.
