The platform will educate their parents on effectively helping their children manage Type 1 diabetes.
Incepted under the guidance of Endocrinologist Dr. Beena Bansal (Ex-Director of Division of Endocrinology, Medanta), Saksham’s support team educates and enables individuals with Type 1 diabetes, as well as their caregivers to face life challenges with strength and intellect. This CSR partnership aims to extend technological support for self-management of diabetes, a chronic condition which requires constant commitment and care by the patient and their caretakers equally.

Commenting on this partnership, Gautam Chopra, Co-Founder & CEO, BeatO said, “Type 1 Diabetes can be difficult for children to manage but, it does not have to be. Through this partnership we are looking forward to empowering children to manage their sugar levels easily with our connected devices and app and getting expert support when they need it the most. This will not only instil confidence in them that someone is there to help but also give them freedom from the stress of daily decision making.”
Through its HealthNeuron system, the platform is able to monitor people with Diabetes real time, and provide timely triggers for proactive intervention through specialists as soon as the system senses a need for this intervention.
