Advanced nutritional inference engine for making personalized diets
Summary:
A Spanish SME of e-health sector has developed a cloud tool to perform as a virtual nutritionist to make personalized diets.The tool is capable of making targeted diets in few seconds for several purposes:weight,sport nutrition,cancer patients,diabetics.It´s supported by a database of 12.000 diets designed by a team of nutritionists.They are seeking nutrition/health professionals for commercial agreements with technical assistance or local IT providers to health sector for technical cooperation
Description:
In developed and developing countries, many projects have demonstrated that enhanced communication efforts can improve the health and well-being of populations. More recently IT technologies have emerged as a viable means of both gathering and disseminating nutrition information.

Computer technologies, both stand-alone and on-line applications, provide many opportunities for nutrition and professionals from this area. However to date, there have been only a limited number of programmes developed and evaluated by nutritionists. Nutrition educators have had minor participation.

A Spanish technology based SME that develops software tools for medical nutrition therapy has recently developed an advanced nutritional inference engine for making personalized diets and improve health of patients via nutrition.

Nutritionists and health professional team are totally involved in all stages: from the development to the exploitation of the technology and technical support for final users.

The tool is completed by a database of more than 600 recipes and 12.000 diets that have been specifically created and evaluated by a medical and nutritionist team.

This innovative cloud based tool is supported by powerful algorithms to make personalized diets automatically for several purposes:
- Diets for losing weight.
- Diets for sport nutrition.
- Diets for cancer patients.
- Diets for diabetics.

Therefore, this health tool can be of special interest for:
- Health and nutrition.
- Marketing of foods/dietary supplements in diets.
- Diabetes-cancer-chronic diseases.

Diets to be generated have into account physical and anthropometrics characteristics.

How it works

- Since it relies on physical and anthropometrics personal characteristics, the tool can calculate the total energy consumption through the formulation of the Harris-Benedict.

- It defines the energy specifically needed by a patient and suggests an equilibrated caloric profile according to the recommendations of the following organisms: ESPEN, SEOM-SEOR, FAO-OMS

- It distributes the total energy needed for a day in 5-6 meals.

- It calculates the amount of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids should be eaten per day and meal.

Finally, it turns all the information (processed before) into recipes from the database.

Some other functionalities of the tool are:

- Unlimited patients and diets. Besides, new dishes can be included.
- Diets and recipes can be downloaded in PDF format.
- Customised web framework for the professional who is using the tool.
- Online support service by nutritional and health professionals.

The Spanish SME is looking for interested partners to achieve several types of agreements:

a) Finals users to include this technology as a support tool for their services. This innovative tool will contribute to manage more efficiently the follow up of some kind of patients and therefore, facilitate daily work at consult. Besides, it will reduce costs and improve quality of life of patients. Commercial agreement with technical assistance is sought with health service stakeholders like hospitals, care providers, clinic as well as nutritional professionals.

b) Providers of IT services to health sector are sought for technical cooperation in terms of sales, market prospective, installation, helpdesk. This technical cooperation is also welcome for the integration of the platform into other tools developed by the interested partner or third parties.
Advantages and Innovations:
This tool shows the following advantages and innovations in comparison to similar existing tools:

- Real personalization: professional diets are generated in real time.
The system does not use templates to generate diets since it is completely personalised according to physic and anthropometric features of the patient

- Reduced time for the generation of professional diets: No more than 15 seconds.

- Design flexibility to personalise the web framework of the tool to be used by the nutritional or health professional.

- Nutrition knowledge is not necessary so it is a perfect tool for health professionals to provide added value services.
