The Maestro Rechargeable System is for people who have a body mass index (BMI) of more than 35 or have a weight-related condition that requires them to eat less to lose weight and become healthier.

The device blocks the signal from the vagus nerve, letting you know you are full by stopping the line of communication between your major organs and brain. The year-long study involved 239 participants who qualified for the device, which helped participants lose an average of nine percent body weight. Those who were placed on the placebo trial went on to lose six percent of their body weight. 

“The treatment was well tolerated, having met the primary safety objective,” wrote researchers in the study’s report. 

A longer study’s results have not yet been released but involved a smaller number of participants who were able to keep excess weight off for at least five years after having used the device. 

Learn more about the study and its findings in The Big Think, Inc. article “Electronic Weight Loss Implant Approved by USDA.”
