Cori helps people with diabetes regain control and motivates them to improve every day.
After a year and a half of development, Cori has reached the App Store today. An app that helps people with diabetes regain control and motivates them to continue improving day by day.
After a year and a half of development, Chubby Apps is launching Cori today. An app that helps people with diabetes regain control and motivates them to continue improving day by day.
The app was born during the lockdown caused by COVID-19 on Spain in early 2020. “Stress is one of the factors that can alter blood glucose levels; and the uncertainty of that month of March made my diabetes drastically worse”, explains Asier G. Morato, developer and co-founder of Chubby Apps. “For years people with diabetes had access to biosensors that measure their blood glucose 24 hours a day, the problem was that despite having a Big Data of what was happening in my body it was very difficult to understand it and make some decision. So we decided to get down to business and develop Cori”.
As Patricia Bedoya, designer and co-founder of Chubby Apps, explains, Cori has been designed for people instead of doctors: “We take the more than 105,000 glucose measurements generated by the biosensors per year and display it in a way that any person can understand”. For this, the app uses techniques such as a traffic light that classifies each glucose measurement by color according to the range it is in; or graphs that analyze the data in real time and display it in an understandable way. “All this respecting the privacy of the user. All data is encrypted so that only the user can see it”, concludes.
Since no two people experience diabetes alike, Cori is fully customizable. From the home screen, where users can choose from more than 80 different widget configurations, to the app icon itself.
Cori is currently available for iPhone and iPad and can be downloaded for free from the App Store. The Android version will be released in the coming months. To celebrate the launch, the Pro version that unlocks all the features of the app has a 50% discount ($19.99 / year).
In recent weeks, Cori has received awards such as the first prize in Innomakers4health award organized by Pfizer and The Cube, a hackathon that seeks to “help patients understand, in a visual and understandable way, their pathology and treatment”; As the award for the best idea by Álava Emprende.
