A Smart Companion for People on Tube Feeding Regimens
We removed the guesswork so patients with dietary challenges can be 100% confident about their nutritional intake
The FoodFriend project delivers a complete toolset that can automatically measure a person’s food intake by using a tube system (medical device) with a minimum of required user-input and turn it into personalized and actionable feedback.
FoodFriend’s technology targets the prevention of malnutrition in nursing homes and in patients using tube feeding and the Nutritional trans-mural care of chronic diseases like obesity and type 2 diabetes.
The goal of the Food Friend project is the development of a food intake monitoring tool, consisting of hardware, software and methodologies, that can be used by care professionals, research institutions or home users to get a better overview of a person’s dietary behavior. The Food Friend toolset consists of both hardware, in the form of sensors, and software, in the form of an application or web-portal built on MedRecord’s API and companion interface MedSafe. Together they automatically monitor a person’s food intake, barcode scanning automatically detects the nutritional content of food packages with a minimum of required user-input and provides relevant and timely feedback to the user, their coaches and food/meal providers.
MedRecord worked on this project alongside 16 partners from 5 countries with the goal of collaborating on defining a global generic framework and ontology for nutritional behaviour modelling.
This project is funded by the project partners and national governments as part of the ITEA-3 program.The project started in 2019 and will take 3 years.
