Company Summary

InSpark's founders have a passion for helping people with diabetes live a healthy, normal life. We are developing software tools that help transform the significant amount of blood glucose data captured by patients (more than 25 B tests per annum) into useful insight. The algorithms powering our software were conceived and tested by one of the top thought leaders in diabetes algorithm development, Dr. Kovatchev at the University of VIrginia.
