Our Hello
Focus Study

Join us on the journey to improve your cognitive performance, skills and well-being.

30-day study to improve your cognitive performance & well-being

We want to support you to enhance your cognitive performance by monitoring your blood glucose in real time. With the help of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), you can access your blood glucose levels 24/7 for 28 days. Our newly developed mobile app will allow you to see your blood glucose levels in real time. This allows you to understand when you perform and feel your best.

What do I get?

Latest Technology
You will be part of a very exclusive high-tech study. You will get access to cutting-edge technology and a next-generation glucose biosensor.
Guidance
You will do a deep dive into your body and receive recommendations on boosting your memory, attention span and reaction time as well as overall well-being.
Curriculum & Program Access
