Safe, Simple, Effective Weight Loss

In the quest to tame excess weight, only one mode of action has been clinically proven to produce significant long term results: dietary restriction.

Until now, to benefit from dietary restriction required a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 35 and invasive surgery.

Rapid eating has been clearly linked to excess weight in numerous laboratory and epidemiological studies.  The hurried lifestyles that have accelerated over the past thirty years closely parallel the unprecedented growth in overweight and obesity.

Experts agree that safety, efficacy, behavior modification, affordability, ease of use and precise progress monitoring are critical attributes of any weight loss therapy destined for widespread adoption.  Scientific Intake's patented, clinically validated SMART™ Device provides safe, affordable dietary restriction for the BMI 27 to 35 population.  Sensor Monitored Alimentary Restriction Therapy (SMART) restricts intake at the gateway to the body without side effects.  The custom made device is placed only while eating and modifies eating behavior in four ways:

  1. Smaller bites slow eating.

  2. Thorough chewing without gulping.

  3. Increased taste and savoring of food.

  4. Allows time to trigger the body's satiety response, so fewer calories are consumed to feel satisfied.

Our proprietary embedded microsensor automatically journals compliance and progress to a specific weight goal via a secure website that is accessible by patients and their healthcare providers.

The SMART™ Device is designated as a Class I medical device in Canada, Europe and Australia and is available from trained providers. Currently, the SMART™ Device is not commercially available in the United States. Please check our website often for updates.
