Enrique Moguel, Javier Berrocal, José García-Alonso
2019 Sensors  
Recently, a great research effort has been devoted to using different technologies and proposing different techniques for monitoring food-intake.  ...  Especially in elder populations (in 2017, 6.7% of the world's population was over 65 years of age), these habits could lead to important-nutrient losses that could seriously affect their cognitive and  ...  Sections 1 and 2 have been modified and adapted to explain the problem and motivation for a systematic review of monitoring food-intake technology in an aging population.  ...
