Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution partnership with Nutricia to offer medical nutritional supplements for frailty and disease-related malnutrition to a larger consumer market. Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition, a specialized healthcare division of Danone, is headquartered in the Netherlands with research facilities in 34 countries. Nutricia's history stretches back over 100 years, with humble beginnings as a specialist in infant formulas. In the early 1900s, they pioneered the concepts of specialized medical nutrition, such as creating low-sugar milk for diabetic patients and iodine-rich milk for those with goiter and thyroid issues. Nutricia acquired the companies, SHS International from the UK and Milupa from Germany in the 1990s, giving them new expertise in areas such as severe cow's milk allergies, and inborn metabolic disorders. Nutricia and these businesses were united together under the parent company of Numico, and then Numico was acquired by Danone in 2007. This merge has resulted in the Numico businesses becoming the two fastest growing divisions—Danone Baby Nutrition and Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition, with the latter being Danone's most specialized, science-based division that is totally focused on healthcare, and the support through nutrition of patients and their caregivers everywhere.
Nutricia develops serious, scientifically proven nutritional supplements specifically designed to meet the needs of patients and individuals for whom a normal diet is not sufficient or possible. They focus on creating products with proven efficacy, using clinical trials and working with a variety of medical specialists, scientists, dieticians, pharmacies, health authorities, patient organizations, hospitals and institutions to understand and further develop the health economic aspects of their business, and the many cost benefits that result from improved nutritional support of patients everywhere. Their products are typically prescribed or recommended by healthcare professionals, and are dispensed in hospitals, care homes and other care facilities, or through pharmacies and home care delivery.
Their unique product range offers healthcare professionals the scope they need to select nutritional options that are accurately targeted to support specific management regimes and to enhance patient recovery. Products include protein supplementation, fiber supplementation, probiotic supplementation, urinary tract supplementation, renal care supplementation and pressure ulcer and wound care supplementation, with the large majority of their products being in liquid or powder form for easier administration and improved assimilation in the body. “We are proud to introduce more consumers to these fantastic medical nutritional supplements from Nutricia,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “No one can surpass the excellence and efficacy of these nutritional products, and any healthcare professional is sure to find exactly the right product they need for their own individual patients' needs. These supplements are absolutely the best choice for the frail, weak, elderly, and anyone going through recovery, rehabilitation, or disease-related malnutrition.”
