Voices needed for groundbreaking type 2 diabetes study

Voices needed for groundbreaking type 2 diabetes study

A new research initiative is currently seeking volunteers to participate in a pioneering study that aims to investigate the feasibility of using voice recordings to detect type 2 diabetes.

DDM Health and the Royal Holloway, University of London have launched the innovative trial to develop a non-invasive tool capable of identifying individuals at risk of type 2 diabetes solely through the analysis of their voice.

This groundbreaking new tool will be able to detect type 2 diabetes earlier than usual, meaning less people will be living with the condition undiagnosed.

The researchers are now inviting individuals with and without type 2 diabetes to participate in the study by filling in a survey and sharing anonymous voice data.

Arjun Panesar, AI expert and Chief Operations Officer at DDM Health, said: “Your voice could make a difference.

“Your participation could play a crucial role in advancing early detection and prevention efforts, potentially benefitting millions worldwide by contributing to the development of a non-invasive and convenient method for early detection of type 2 diabetes.”

Charlotte Summers, Chief Operations Officer at DDM, said: “In our groundbreaking study, we are delving into the realm of possibilities by exploring the potential of voice recordings to revolutionise the early detection of type 2 diabetes, paving the way for a future where a person’s voice could hold valuable insights into their health.

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with the esteemed Royal Holloway, University of London, on this study. Their expertise and commitment to innovation will undoubtedly elevate our research efforts.”

DDM Health provide AI-led, data-driven population health solutions to empower patients to achieve their health goals, with over 1.8 million members across platforms.

DDM Health work with global partners within healthcare, insurance, and diagnostics to engage populations and improve clinical health outcomes leading to reduced costs for the healthcare system.
