There is good news for people troubled by increasing weight. Scientists have created a weight-loss device that has magnets attached to it. On applying this, a person is not able to open his mouth much and due to this he is not able to eat solid things. In a way, the human mouth is completely locked. It is being told that this is the first device of its kind in the world. For the world battling obesity, a team of researchers from the University of Otago in New Zealand and the UK has created this magnet-based device. Its name is the DentalSlim diet control device that is applied to the upper and lower part of the tooth with the help of a dentist. It uses magnets that are fitted with specially designed locking bolts.
Lost 6.36 kg in two weeks
After the device is placed in the mouth, that person will be able to open his mouth only 2 mm. This will allow him to eat only liquids. After this device made of magnet is installed, a person will be able to speak and breathe easily. During the trial, the patients who were fitted with this device lost 6.36 kg in just two weeks. Such people are very happy with this method of weight loss and are continuing it now. Lead researcher Professor Paul Brunton said the device would be very effective, safe and accessible to everyone battling obesity. This device can be installed with the help of a dentist and that person can easily remove it in case of emergency.
65 crore people are obese
This device can be installed and removed multiple times. He said that people are not able to control their diet, due to which their obesity is not reduced. Eating can be controlled with the help of a device made of magnets. Around two billion people around the world are overweight. At the same time, 65 crore people are victims of obesity.
