Progeo | Nutrigeo - software per la creazione di piani alimentari innovativi

A cutting-edge nutritional therapy program, which marks a turning point in the field of nutrition science.

PROGEO created NUTRIGEO, an innovative, state-of-the-art, functional and forward- looking software for nutritional therapy that is going to be the foundation of nutritionists work for the next decade.

The software includes several important innovations: an advanced algorithm for completely revised food plans, and an EMS (Energy Management system), which allows energy intake optimization and therefore a greater therapeutic effectiveness, by addressing both metabolic issues and overweight treatment. Among the new features, there is a cutting-edge, fully detailed, flexible and intuitive electronic medical folder, which allows nutritionists to easily access data. Thanks to all of its features, NUTRIGEO allows users to set up the most appropriate nutritional strategy.

Scientific foundation

Years of scientific research were required for the development of NUTRIGEO: the software is based on influential scientific studies and international as well as national official scientific resources. Moreover, we have taken into account requests received by universities and hospitals using our technologies and carefully considered their valuable suggestions. Thanks to all this, NUTRIGEO is highly appreciated for its reliability and excellence.

Food database

NUTRIGEO has an extensive and extremely accurate food database (over 2000 entries) covering a wide range of nutritional needs. The database is constantly updated by our scientific department and made available to our users.

Bromatological entries

NUTRIGEO offers over 70 bromatological entries for each food, derived from major scientific resources. Once a diet is planned, you can at any time view the assigned macro and micro values using the Focus function.
You can also view daily or average daily reports regarding nutrients used in the whole diet.

Photo Food Intake

This is a tool that allows you to make an accurate assessment of patient food intake by means of an extensive storage of digital images.
There are three types of investigation for the assessment:

  1. 24-Hour Recall mode
  2. Dietary Record mode
  3. “Customary type” mode

While the first two are already existing methods, the last technology was designed and produced by PROGEO Research Centre, and it is especially useful for dieticians, due to the short time required to reconstruct food intake in an inductive and reliable way.

This last method is based on a food frequency questionnaire to measure patient food intake; thereafter, the actual food intakes are evaluated.
When conventional standard units (spoon, glass and so on) cannot be used for quantification, high resolution images appear on screen so that patients can identify their normal food servings.
Three possible quantities (small, medium and large) are displayed for each food, and patients, beside choosing one of them as the normal food serving, can also enter intermediate quantities, by moving the pointer on an analogical visual scale; the software will accurately calculate the food intake quantity according to the pointer position.
