About AkibaH

Why we do what we do, and the team behind GluCase.

Our Story

Our name comes from the Swahili proverb, akiba haiozi, which means, “a person with foresight will always know prosperity.” We believe we can arm people with the foresight to know how their everyday decisions impact their health.

 

We’re currently building products to streamline and simplify diabetes management after watching our own friends and family members struggle with their condition.

 

Life’s too short to worry about carrying around bulky glucometers and deciphering unintuitive graphs. That’s why AkibaH has developed GluCase, a patent-pending technology that takes all the components of a traditional glucose measuring system and seamlessly integrates them into a compact smartphone case.

 

GluCase communicates with a mobile application and physician dashboard to present glucose levels in context of other information such as activity and diet, giving users and caretakers the ability to see how their decisions impact their health in real time.

 

Thereby enabling the delivery of better preventative care, allowing for better outcomes, and driving down costs for all stakeholders (patients, providers, and payers).

 

Before drafting any designs or writing code, we made sure to learn as much as we could about the challenges of diabetes management. For months, we regularly tested our blood sugar and spoke with individuals and their physicians. We involved them in every step of the design process to craft a tool they actually wanted to use.

 

If you're looking for a more innovative and intuitive way of managing your diabetes, we'd love to hear from you.
