The SMART™ Device is designed to help you achieve a healthy weight – but it is not for everyone. The SMART Device is a small, removable, custom made oral device that slows food intake during meals and snacks. It is a tool that makes you slow down and enjoy your food while eating less of it. There are some quick points to consider to maximize your success with the SMART Weight Loss™ Device:
Do you eat your meals too quickly? People who take very small bites and are naturally slow eaters may not benefit from SMART Weight Loss as much as people who eat their meals very quickly.
Is your oral health good? Because the SMART™ Device is placed at the mouth, people with poor oral health or missing a number of teeth are often not suitable for the device until their condition has been corrected by a dentist.
Are you motivated to lose weight? Weight loss success with SMART™ is also dependent on your motivation and compliance. The SMART Device is voluntarily placed — it is not surgically implanted in the body. Voluntarily placed devices (much like contact lenses, hearing aids and birth control) do not work if not used as directed. Of course, the SMART Sensor is designed to help you by showing you when you need to improve usage of the device with personalized daily, weekly and monthly charts.
The good news is that the SMART™ Device is safe and easy to use. It is simply placed at the roof of the mouth (the palate) each time you eat. You will be amazed at how quickly you will get in the habit of using your device if you make the commitment to yourself at the very beginning. Many users tell us that they like the flexibility of SMART. If you miss a meal, your efforts to date are not ruined. You control SMART. It does not control you with rigid schedules, ongoing costs or specific dosage times.
Each SMART™ Device is created from a special palatal impression kit under the supervision of a trained SMART Provider. Your patented SMART™ Device is precision made for you alone using proprietary materials and methods. No two SMART Devices are the same and the “restriction factor” of your device is determined by our laboratory experts and proprietary formula. It will made only for your mouth to optimize its safety and efficacy. Included with each SMART™ Device is the embedded SMART Sensor and a SMART Reader with software – all for less than the cost of about six months of a prescription diet drug or a health club membership.
