The Paperweight Armband

The Paperweight Armband launched at Food Matters Live 2015 our new breakthrough non-medical, non-intrusive tool being pioneered in Salford: revolutionising the way we identify and deal with malnutrition.

The Paperweight Armband can lead to

  • A reduction in unscheduled admissions to the acute hospital of those identified with malnutrition in the population.
  • Improvements in weight without the need for formal medical intervention.
  • Increase the proportion of older people who feel supported to manage their own conditions.
  • Improving the quality of life for service users and carers.
