Nemaura Medical Scales-Up Pilot Expansion of proBEAT™; 56 Corporations in the U.S. Signed Up for Pilots in June 2023

LOUGHBOROUGH, June 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nemaura Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: NMRD) (“Nemaura” or the “Company”), a medical technology company focused on non-invasive wearable sensors and personalized weight reduction programs, announces the next commercialization stage of its proBEAT sensor and AI-based feedback platform, augmenting the BEATdiabetes program. The pilots are intended as a precursor to revenue generating contracts for proBEAT and will commence over the coming weeks and months. The Company is continuing its discussions with corporations and health insurers in the U.S. to further increase the number of pilots that will run in calendar year 2023.

Dr. Faz Chowdhury, Nemaura’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The expansion of the BEATdiabetes program into employers and insurers in the U.S. represents significant progress towards bringing more innovative diabetes care solutions to our target markets. Importantly to Nemaura, this is a big step toward revenue generation with our proBEAT platform, and we aim to continue the momentum over the coming months and years. We spent a vast amount of time and resource optimizing and scaling our sensor manufacturing processes and it’s extremely fulfilling for the team to see their hard work come to fruition through these developments, bringing cost-effective solutions to the market.”

The BEATdiabetes program specifically addresses the growing problem of diabetes and the serious complications associated with the condition, which include heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, amputation and certain types of cancer. The Centre for Disease Control (CDC) estimate that 37.3 million people have diabetes in the United States (11.3% of the US population). Diabetes is the most expensive chronic condition in the United States:

  • $1 out of every $4 in US health care costs is spent on caring for people with diabetes
  • $237 billion is spent each year on direct medical costs and another $90 billion on reduced productivity

There is increasing pressure on program providers to differentiate their programs and increase efficacy. Sensors that can provide feedback on health and wellness enhance both health outcomes and returns on investment for program providers and payers.

To the best of the company’s knowledge, Nemaura’s CGM device is the only non-invasive daily wear sensor presently available and currently approved for use as a Class IIb medical device in Europe. Specifically designed for one day wear, the device removes the need for needle-based testing found in other CGM’s and blood glucose monitoring devices, reducing cost, and making it user-friendly. Pilot studies integrating glucose sensors as part of a general metabolic health and wellbeing program are already currently running in collaboration with the UK’s National Health Service with encouraging results to date. Nemaura is utilizing its sensor in the form of proBEAT whereby sensor data and numerous other inputs by the users on the BEATdiabetes app is gathered, and AI is used to provide regular feedback and personalized programs for the user, either electronically or through assigned coaches, to provide a gradual and sustainable impact on behavioral change.
