At Whisk we are excited to be building a solution that we feel

can help support these patients to make lasting lifestyle changes.

We hope that through our work with Ascensia Diabetes Care, we

can help to change the way this condition is managed." - Whisk

Founder Nick Holzherr"

Whisk's solution was selected from

116 entries that were submitted to the

challenge from 25 countries and they will

receive a cash prize of €100,000 to build

and pilot this new service and working

closely with Ascensia Diabetes Care to

bring it to patients.

Nick Holzherr, Whisk Founder and

CEO, said: "We are absolutely delighted

to have been chosen as the winner of

the Ascensia Diabetes Challenge. Type 2

diabetes has reached epidemic levels in

recent years, and at Whisk we are excited

to be building a solution that we feel can

help support these patients to make

lasting lifestyle changes. We hope that

through our work with Ascensia Diabetes

Care, we can help to change the way this

condition is managed."

Runners up

The competition also awarded two

runners-up prizes. US-based Qstream

were awarded a runner-up prize for their

mobile learning platform that combines a

concept known as spaced education with

engaging game mechanics. This platform

is designed to encourage meaningful

behaviour change and has been proven

in a recent randomized trial to generate

sustained and meaningful reductions in

HbA1c in people with diabetes.

xBird, a GermanY-based medical

artificial intelligence software company

was also named as a runner-up. Their

software analyzes micro-movements,

collected by smartphones and wearables,

and cross references them with historical

blood glucose data, with the aim of

being able to predict and detect potential

hypo- and hyperglycaemic events. Both

runners-up will receive a cash prize of

€30,000 to further develop their solutions.

Walk With Path were also recognized

for their innovative active insole for

people with peripheral neuropathy due to

diabetes. It provides vibrational feedback

during walking that can be tracked via

an app and is designed to help people

achieve better balance, thereby reducing

the risk of falls. Ascensia will support Walk

with Path to conduct a proof of concept

study in patients with diabetes.
