DietSensor, Inc., a developer of smart food and nutrition applications designed to fight diabetes and obesity and help improve overall fitness, has announced the launch of its DietSensor app for iPhone. The Android version will be announced at CES, January 5-8, 2017. DietSensor is available in the App Store now.
Named a CES 2016 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree, DietSensor breaks new ground in diet and nutrition apps, integrating food sensors, primarily designed to make food counting more manageable for those suffering from diabetes or dealing with obesity. For type 1 and type 2 Diabetes, counting carbohydrates on a daily basis is critical. And for those who want or need to lose weight, DietSensor is a powerful new tool that helps by measuring total nutritional intake (what you eat) on a personal, and comprehensive level.
Stay on track, stay balanced
Starting with the creation of a secure, personal profile, the DietSensor app creates a unique, personalized nutritional plan, broken out by meal times, and macro nutrient intake, based on user-defined goals (for example, controlling diabetes, losing weight and so forth). Using the app, users track all macro nutrients (fats, proteins and carbohydrates) and, through the apps proprietary onboard nutritional coach, receive actionable advice and food or portion size recommendations, based on the historical data of the day and the goals that were set initially in the users profile.
Complete and advanced food logging tool
Subscribers to DietSensors Ultimate plan also have the option to use the pocket-sized SCiO spectrometer, an add-on device developed by Consumer Physics that gathers information on the molecular make-up of homogenous food types, such as beef, fish, fruit, bread, milk or 80 other food types. It generates chemical and nutritional data, which is fed directly into the app via Bluetooth. No other nutritional management app offers this functionality. DietSensor can also connect to a Bluetooth digital scale, another optional device, which weighs food portions and sends data directly into the app.
Food and drink can also be logged in the app in a variety of more traditional ways. Users can access the apps integrated nutritional database, which contains more than 600,000 items from 19 countries in 12 languages, to search for the values of any type of food. Users can also scan a products barcode to pull in the data, or add favorite foods to their own photo gallery, making carb counting and food logging much easier and far less tedious.
Designed to support the estimated 415 million people who suffer from diabetes and more than 1.4 billion people who battle each day with obesity, DietSensor has everyday applications for anybody interested in health and nutrition management, for example, general weight management, diabetes, fitness, or simply knowing what exactly we are putting into our bodies.
DietSensors core goal is to stem the growth of diabetes and obesity by providing people and businesses with access to real-time, real world applications that better manage chronic conditions.
“We are excited to share the news that DietSensor for iOS is now available in the Apple app store, and we believe that it will improve the quality of life for these communities in a very meaningful way,” says Remy Bonnasse, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder, DietSensor, Inc.
“It is a dream come true for our family, our company and the thousands of friends and colleagues from the diabetes community who have been waiting for this day,” comments Astrid Bonnasse, parent and co-founder, DietSensor.
