The invention, called “DentalSlim Diet Control”, is applied to the upper and lower teeth of a patient. Due to the clamps, the wearer can no longer open their mouth and you can only consume liquid food. It is no longer possible to simply grab a bag of crisps or reach for the cookie jar.
“This is torture”

After the reviews, the university felt compelled to provide more explanation: ,, To clarify: the device is not intended as a rapid or long-term weight loss aid. Rather, it is intended to help people who need to have surgery but cannot until they have lost weight. “
Despite the outcry, researchers continue with the creepy jaw clamps. The university wants to find a business partner so that they can research the effect with more patients.
