What Our Partners Say
Digest Inn has been developed in collaboration with partners who understand the benefits that digital applications can offer in dietetics.
“We are convinced that this program, Digest Inn, is an interesting, new way to make the treatment of obesity more fun and therefore more effective. This application differs from existing apps and coaching programs because it is personalized and requires interaction by the dietitian.”
