Don’t feel like eating? Or want to eat prior to exercise but don’t know how much insulin to take? The coaching assistant can help guide you through this process with your insulin regimen or food modifications. Engine 1 can also help you prepare for your exercise by calculating the total carbohydrate needs before activity so you don’t run out while you are exercising.

Our apps are designed for any person with Type 1 diabetes who wants greater guidance and control during exercise. Currently, our app is limited to patients with Type 1 diabetes who are using insulin therapy with either Lantus or an insulin pump. Future versions of Engine 1 will support other insulin types , please check back for updates soon. As with any new exercise regimen, we recommend that you consult with your doctor before using Engine 1.
Engine 1 uses a robust nutritional database that asks you to preselect your favorite foods to be used for before, during, and post exercise. Our algorithms will then direct you to which food choices would be best and in what amounts dependent upon the activity type, blood sugar, and current insulin status.
Engine 1 features a setup assistant that walks you through the various pre workout steps to prepare your diabetes fully for activity and helps guide your nutrition based on your current insulin on board. Engine 1 also has a post exercise coached recovery meal that uses intensity (perceived effort and heart rate) and duration to help you select foods and also based on your fitness levels and goals.
Engine 1 mobile also has the capability to notify and warn the user for predictive low blood sugars and in some instances prevent the user from initiating exercise based on insulin on board or nutritional status. Mapping out of nutrition and exercise before workout helps the user prepare for their intended activity and stay in optimal blood sugar range.
