MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Twin Health, makers of the Whole Body Digital Twin™ precision health service, today announced $140 million in Series C funding as it scales its service in the U.S. and globally.
Founded in 2018, Twin Health invented the Whole Body Digital Twin™ to help reverse and prevent chronic metabolic diseases, while improving energy and physical health. Powered by artificial intelligence, the Whole Body Digital Twin™ is a dynamic representation of each individual’s unique metabolism, built from thousands of data points collected daily via non-invasive wearable sensors and self-reported preferences. The Whole Body Digital Twin™ is a predictive model that provides individualized nutrition, sleep, activity and breathing guidance to patients and their healthcare providers, helping to reverse and prevent multiple chronic metabolic diseases.
“We are each gifted a body. If given a chance, it can heal itself. Our Whole Body Digital Twin™ lives alongside you – giving you a view into your beautifully complex biology, continuously learning about your metabolism and telling you what you can do to improve your health in the moment,” said Jahangir Mohammed, Founder and CEO of Twin Health.
Chronic metabolic disease is widespread and growing. The global prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome is estimated as 20-25%. Worldwide, 415 million people are living with diabetes, and more than 500 million will have diabetes by 2040, according to the CDC.
Chronic metabolic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, can start as an individual’s metabolism breaks down over time. Medical research has demonstrated that each person’s metabolism functions uniquely, presenting significant challenges to healthcare providers’ understanding and ability to customize treatment for every single person. For the first time, the Whole Body Digital Twin™ addresses this complexity using cutting-edge technology and advanced medical science to deliver personalized, precise and timely insights with recommendations to address the root cause.
Twin Health’s service is an all-inclusive program consisting of multiple sensors including continuous glucose monitors and fitness watches, comprehensive blood tests and the development of each member’s individualized Whole Body Digital Twin™, as well as consultations with healthcare providers and Twin coaches. The Whole Body Digital Twin™ technology continuously monitors the health of the individual and enables healthcare providers and Twin coaches to take quick actions. Through an easy-to-use app, patients and their care team are provided individualized, precise, timely guidance across nutrition, sleep, activity and breathing. Healthcare providers can access organized biomarker data and medication reduction recommendations for their patients, with the goal of reversing chronic disease. The Twin service is available today via partner programs such as employer benefits or health insurance plans.
