Title
(EN) SYSTEM FOR MONITORING AND MANAGING BODY WEIGHT AND OTHER PHYSIOLOGICAL CONDITIONS INCLUDING ITERATIVE AND PERSONALIZED PLANNING, INTERVENTION AND REPORTING CAPABILITY

Abstract
(EN) A nutrition and activity management system is disclosed that monitors energy expenditure of an individual through the use of a body-mounted sensing apparatus (10). The apparatus is particularly adapted for continuous wear. The system is also adaptable or applicable to measuring a number of other physiological parameters and reporting the same and derivations of such parameters. A weight management embodiment is directed to achieving an optimum or pre-selected energy balance between calories consumed and energy expended by the user. An adaptable computerized nutritional tracking system is utilized to obtain data regarding food consumed. Relevant and predictive feedback is provided to the user regarding the mutual effect of the user's energy expenditure, food consumption and other measured or derived or manually input physiological contextual parameters upon progress toward said goal.
(FR) La présente invention concerne système de gestion de nutrition et d'activité qui surveille la dépense d'énergie d'une personne via l'utilisation d'un appareil de détection monté sur l'anatomie de cette personne. Cet appareil convient particulièrement pour être porté en continu. Ce système peut aussi être adapté et appliqué pour mesurer un certain nombre d'autres paramètres physiologiques et rapporter ces derniers ainsi que des résultats de calculs effectués à partir de ces paramètres. Un mode de réalisation de gestion de poids permet d'obtenir un équilibre d'énergie optimum ou présélectionné entre des calories consommées et l'énergie dépensée par l'utilisateur. Un système de suivi nutritionnel informatisé est utilisé pour obtenir des données relatives aux aliments consommés, un retours d'information pertinent et prédictif étant fourni à l'utilisateur pour ce qui concerne l'effet mutuel de la dépense d'énergie de cet utilisateur, de la consommation d'aliments et d'autres paramètres contextuels physiologiques mesurés, calculés ou entrés manuellement lors des avancés vers ce but.
