Solving the Malnutrition Problem
MuscleSound is the new standard of care.
“This metric is so vital that we believe muscle health will become the next measurement to qualify overall health,
similar to blood pressure, heart rate, and other ‘vital signs’.”
– Dr. Paul Wischmeyer, Duke University Medical Center
Malnutrition, Sarcopenia, Frailty, Cachexia and other muscle composition and nutrition-based conditions are rarely diagnosed, rarely documented, rarely treated, and rarely coded and billed for – yet continue to significantly contribute to adverse surgical care, critical care, cancer care and rehabilitation care outcomes.
The estimated annual cost of disease-associated malnutrition is over $147 billion in the U.S. market alone.
Research shows that up to 60% of hospitalized adults have malnutrition, yet only 10% of malnourished patients are actually diagnosed as malnourished and of those diagnosed, less than 40% receive meaningful nutrition therapy.
MuscleSound will solve the malnutrition problem.
