Yabbit focuses on helping patients overcome the key environmental, psychological, and social barriers that inhibit long term weight loss. Combining behavioral data from our app, biometric data from connected devices, and GPS data from the smartphone, Yabbit generates individualized daily challenges that are achievable based on each patient’s mental readiness for change and that are sensitive to the patient’s environmental or social limitations. The goal is to develop a democratized model of effective preventive care available to all.

While people are living longer, the cost of keeping people alive to old age has become astronomical – which raises significant problems for those less well off, who have to make choices between long-term health and present expenses. The data around preventable, weight related chronic conditions is startling – nearly half of Americans will be obese (not just overweight, but obese) within the next 15 years. Obesity fuels a myriad of major public health issues, such as heart disease and stroke – two major killers. Clearly, the key to reducing the cost of healthcare and the risk of acquiring these diseases is down to a much more effective model of preventive care.
