About the project
NANA (Novel Assessment of Nutrition and Ageing) is a system that monitors the nutritional intake and cognitive function of older adults.
NANA is an easy to use touch screen assessment system for older adults. It was developed in partnership with older adults as a way for them to keep track of what they are eating and drinking. NANA also collects information on a person’s cognitive function, mood and physical activity to provide a holistic picture of their well-being. NANA has been developed for daily use by older people living in the community and validated against current gold standard measures.
