NanoNutrio uses a capsule that contains nanosensors to detect micronutrient levels in the body in real-time. Once swallowed, the nanosensor detects biomarkers in the blood (iron, calcium, etc) that standard blood tests use. The data is then sent securely to a NanoNutrio app, where the user’s nutrition levels (i.e. vitamin D) can be read. If there are concerns about the results, the user may visit a doctor to determine further steps. The nanosensor is passed through excretion, so the user may safely take another pill after 48 hours. This project relies on the use of nanotechnology (more specifically, chemical nanosensors) to detect nutrition levels in the body. The miniature quality of this technology enables us to retrieve nutritional data from the human body without harm to the host.
