Diet programs often fail because hunger is very difficult to control. Now there is a food sensor technology to be installed in the stomach, which can remind that the stomach contents are still full while recording calorie intake every meal.

The technology, called The Abiliti, was developed by IntraPace, a manufacturer of medical devices in the United States. There are 2 main components used in this technology, the food sensor and a series of electrodes.

Food sensors serve to detect foods and drinks that enter the stomach, then send a specific signal to the brain if the intake is excessive. The signal gives a message to the brain, that the stomach still feels full so it does not need to be filled.

Another part of this tool is that the electrode circuit has a more sophisticated function. A history of eating or a kind of history can be recorded, and can be read by a doctor from outside the body by using a wireless connection to the computer.

Installation of this tool should be done by operation for 4 hours. But compared to other operations such as gastric bypass or gastric ring installation, the installation of food sensors does not cause side effects because the structure of the stomach and intestines does not change.

"With the new electrode, the installation procedure can be faster," said Thomas Horbach, head surgeon who helped develop the tool, as quoted by Foxnews on Tuesday (8/11/2011).

Unfortunately this sophisticated, unspecified tool is only available in the European region, after obtaining a marketing authorization and a recent security standard certificate. Circulation permits for other regions including the United States have not been approved.
