Scientific Intake was founded in 2003 to develop safe and clinically proven proprietary medical devices for the benefit of individuals suffering from excess weight and obesity. Our mission is to provide non-invasive, easily tolerated and affordable solutions that complement broad disease management and weight loss strategies.
Sensor Monitored Alimentary Restriction Therapy (SmartByte™) is a non-invasive, clinically validated, bariatric medical device to treat overweight and Class I (mild) obesity (BMI 27-35). The device was created in response to research linking rapid eating with excess weight and the unmet need for a safe, effective method of dietary restriction among this growing population, who have become a growing global health concern and represent over 2 billion people worldwide (World Health Organization). They can benefit from weight loss but existing approaches have been unsuccessful. A device-based approach for these patients could be the solution since they are not candidates for surgery.
Working with many of the world’s leading obesity experts, Scientific Intake has established the efficacy of Sensor Monitored Alimentary Restriction Therapy’s multiple modes of action in IRB approved, randomized, controlled clinical trials. These studies have either been published or are currently in press at peer reviewed scientific journals. In 2009, Scientific Intake achieved ISO 13485 status and Class I Medical Device registration in the European Union, Canada and Australia.
