Food Printer Creates Easy Meals For The Elderly
German company Biozoon is developing a machine that produces food which dissolves quickly when eaten.
Researchers at German company Biozoon Food Innovations are developing a 3D printer that can produce solid food which dissolves quickly in the mouth when eaten. The device is designed for elderly patients, especially those who suffer from dysphagia, which makes it difficult for them to swallow.
Most of the time elderly people or those with dysphagia are limited to soft or liquid food and this can make meal times less enjoyable for them. Biozoon hopes to extend the range of meals they can eat with the new 3D printer they are developing.
