HIGHLIGHTS

Akshaya Shanmugam, the CEO of Lumme Inc, is among the innovators and entrepreneurs in the Forbes’ ‘30 under 30’ list in the area of healthcare.

Explaining how the platform would work for a person who smokes, Shanmugam says for the first two weeks, users wear the smartwatches and go about their routine.


The 2018 edition the innovators and entrepreneurs in the Forbes' '30 under 30' list in the area of healthcare includes Akshaya Shanmugam, 29, the CEO of Lumme Inc., which is cracking the code to beat addictive behaviour by combining wearable technology, machine learning, and behavioural psychology. In January 2017, 27-year-old Vivek Kopparthi had made it to the 2017 list for his contributions in neonatal care technology.

After completing her schooling at Chettinad Vidyashram, Shanmugam went on to pursue engineering at Meenakshi Sundararajan Engineering College. In 2009, she moved to the US for higher studies. While Shanmugam was pursuing her PhD in an area that involves developing health monitoring systems outside hospitals, she met Abhinav Parate who was working on a thesis with wearables. With Parate and a few professors, Shanmugam set up Lumme to solve the global addiction problem.

"Our platform automatically detects addictive behaviour, predicts indulgence in addictive behaviour, and prevents it by delivering clinically validated interventions. It also helps individuals gain better insights into their daily life and helps them understand the why, how, and what surrounding their lifestyle choices," said Shanmugam.
