Krizia Ferrini, cereneo Schweiz AG | center for neurology & rehabilitation, will speak at Healthy Nutrition Conference, on June 26, during AgriFood Innovation Event in Venlo, The Netherlands.

The general purpose of the LIFANA Nutrition Solution is to help elderly people maintaining their BMI as their metabolism is changing with age and their eating habits eventually need to be reconsidered. LIFANA provides a personalized meal plan that helps users to prevent undernutrition or overweight and to reach their weight goals. Users with limited mobility require assistance with their shopping tasks, therefore LIFANA integrates informal caregivers in the process and provides a connection to a grocery delivery service.
