Research into malnutrition

Have your say

A TOUCH-SCREEN computer to help detect illness from malnutrition in the elderly has been created by Sheffield University researchers.

The Novel Assessment of Nutrition and Ageing system was showcased at an event at the Houses of Parliament.

It measures what people are eating at home, to support research into malnutrition.

Nana is the result of a three-year project to develop a simple and easy to use system for measuring diet, cognition, mood and physical function.
