Aescuvest International GmbH: tackling diabetes mellitus with a smart treatment management solution

Smart diabetes management solution by Emperra GmbH E-Health Technologies

Potsdam, Frankfurt am Main (pta/06.11.2020/11:25 UTC+1) In Germany, approx. 50% of the more than 7 million diabetes patients, mainly with type 2 diabetes, do not achieve their therapy goals; for instance because they do not accurately document their blood glucose levels. As a result, their quality of life decreases while the risk of heart attacks, strokes and amputations increases. Digital healthcare applications (DiGAs) might be the solution: the ESYSTA technology by Emperra GmbH E-Health Technologies in Potsdam (Germany) and its holistic approach enables patients to adhere to their treatment plans and at the same time facilitates significant cost savings in the healthcare system. On 05.11.2020, Emperra will launch a financing campaign on the EIT Health supported platform, Aescuvest, which specialises in companies in the healthcare sector.

The figures are quite shocking: More than 7 million Germans suffer from type 2 diabetes, affecting around 35 % of all Germans over 60. Obesity and lack of exercise are causing a rapid increase in this widespread disease. Secondary diseases such as heart attacks, strokes and amputations are not only a personal tragedy, but also place a massive financial burden on the healthcare system.

To get diabetes mellitus under control and avoid secondary diseases, it is essential that patients independently take responsibility for documenting their blood glucose values in a diabetes diary. As a general rule, this takes place "analogously" on paper, but paper cannot fact-check and is easily misplaced. So as not to disappoint their doctors, patients often enter the values long after the actual measurement. However, these values are then often incorrect or incomplete. The relationship between doctor and patient frequently suffers from this misplaced embarrassment, as does the ability to make correct treatment decisions - something that should be entirely avoidable.

Diabetes management using smart devices - around the clock and online

Emperra GmbH E-Health Technologies of Potsdam has developed a system which is easy to use for technical laypeople. It" digitally" relieves the patient of most of the documentation effort and makes it easier for the doctor to analyse the data, around the clock and everywhere. Dr med Janko Schildt, founder and managing director of Emperra, commented: "We are the first company in the world to combine all the important tools for recording, monitoring and evaluating diabetes treatment and to make them digitally available to patients and doctors using wireless connectivity. Nevertheless, the technology is very easy to use, which was especially important to us with regard to older patients."

The ESYSTA ecosystem

Emperra GmbH E-Health Technologies has many strings to its bow, all of which are aimed at digitising diabetes management and making everyday life easier for patients and doctors. All ESYSTA products are approved medical devices in accordance with the valid quality standard ISO 13485. The information technologies and processes are certified in accordance with the highest standard ISO 27001.

* With the ESYSTA app, patients can always directly access their data, evaluations and all available services. Wirelessly connected blood glucose meters from various suppliers are also already integrated.
* The ESYSTA pen is the world's first smart insulin pen that records injected insulin units without errors and loads them wirelessly into the highly secure cloud as a data set. It can be used with all common insulins.
* A special automatic ESYSTA traffic light algorithm has been developed in cooperation with research institutes to enable simple treatment control and communication - the basis for further AI connections.
* Personal coaching by qualified diabetes advisors perfectly complements the algorithm-controlled instructions of the ESYSTA assistant in the app.
* The web based ESYSTA portal enables a valid and legally compliant remote treatment option for patients, doctors, diabetologists, etc. This is especially true in times of the Covid-19 pandemic, which is particularly dangerous for older patients with diabetes.
* The ESYSTA platform, which is currently under construction, will be expanded into a virtual diabetes centre in order to constantly expand the range of services offered to patients, doctors and treatment facilities through open interfaces and cooperation with third-party providers.

Emperra develops and distributes both hardware and scalable digital services for a trillion-dollar global market. The essential hardware components of the ESYSTA system, for which several international patents exist, are listed in the product catalogue of the GKV Spitzenverband (German National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Funds), i.e. they are reimbursed by the statutory health insurance companies. The company has already been fulfilling the requirements for "medical apps and software on prescription" (so-called DiGAs = digital healthcare applications) postulated in the recently passed German Digital Health Care Act (Digitale-Versorgung-Gesetz ) for many years, and Emperra therefore expects the software components to soon be reimbursed by the statutory health insurance companies.

ESYSTA saves time and money and reduces stress

The medical efficacy of ESYSTA has been proven. According to the START study (, ESYSTA users achieved an average reduction of 0.9 percentage points in long-term blood glucose HbA1c. In type 2 diabetes patients, the reduction was as much as two percentage points. For perspective: A reduction in HbA1c. of one percentage point reduces the risk of stroke by 14 %. The healthcare system can be estimated to save, on average, more than Eur 30,000 per patient over the treatment period.

Patients save time because the values are all automatically recorded and transmitted digitally and they benefit from remote medical treatment options. This can already be carried out completely safely with ESYSTA, which is becoming increasingly important, especially in times of Covid-19.

Public financing round on Aescuvest

The company has already convinced institutional investors such as Brandenburg Kapital, the venture capital firms Peppermint Venture Partners, Mutschler Ventures and others of its holistic approach. In order to tackle the next development goals and, first and foremost, the marketing of the ESYSTA app as a DiGA with Germany-wide reimbursement, Emperra is taking part in a public financing round on, in collaboration with EIT Health, which specialises in companies in the healthcare sector, and is presenting itself to investors.
