Stuart Arnold is one of the Admins for the Nightscout UK Facebook group and enjoys paying it forward by helping people setup the Nightscout remote monitoring system. Stuart has a daughter that was diagnosed with T1D when she was 7 (in September 2009). In October 2014, Stuart saw the initial code release of Dexterity (by John Costik) and the Wixel app (by Adrien de Croy) in Github which allowed him to upload his daughter's CGM data to the Nightscout software. Stuart feels very lucky that he was able to start using this system from day one and feels that the combination of CGM and remote monitoring is really life changing. Stuart now uses xDrip as the uploader to transmit his daughter's CGM data to their phones, laptops, Pebble and Moto 360 watches wherever they go. While not a developer, Stuart helps the Nightscout Project by testing the Developer branch of the Nightscout software whenever he can.
