We are all Habeateers

So, what’s our story anyway?

MyHabeats is a smartphone application designed especially for post obesity surgery patients. It is a behavioral vaccine to maximize adherence to post surgery guidelines. A digital tool to build healthy eating habits and make lifestyle changes. We provide an evidence-based alternative to standard-of-care approaches and traditional ways of patient self-management.

MyHabeats comes to address the problem of patient adherence to post surgery guidelines for successful weight loss maintenance. Patients may fail to adhere due to the inertia of obesogenic eating and lifestyle habits. Health care practicioners may fail to support adherence due to overestimating patient self-management skills and due to the lack of continued interaction and information exchange.

We, at myHabeats, believe that healthcare is a people business in need of technology, not a technology business in need of people. We are a group of highly motivated people, scientists with different and complementary backgrounds, passionate about entrepreneurial therapy. Following our belief and using our expertise, we have translated the post-operative guidelines into a digital, easy to use and engaging tool to facilitate weight loss maintenance and improve quality of life for the patient.
