5 - Analysis of the causes of effectiveness

The Dutch researcher Sander Hermsen (see here) integrated our tool into his thesis, in 2019, on the study of the effectiveness of different tools promising to modify behavior. Among the tools were those of the biggest brands in electronics. We have been rated as the most effective tool. A tool that keeps its promise "The Slow Control fork was an exceptional case in terms of efficiency". The reason being that the feedback (feedback in scientific terms), visual (light) or sensory (vibration) stimuli that the user receives is concomitant with the cause that provoked these stimuli (eating too quickly) This simultaneity has two merits 1 – for the present, it warns the user who succeeds in eating slowly for the duration of an attention cycle 2 – for the future, it anchors a new engram which, by dint of repetition, will constitute the path of decision of new, slower automatisms.

Upcoming releases:

Applied studies are scheduled:

The topics that interest us in the coming years:

  • State of digestion of a poorly chewed piece when it passes through the intestines
  • Analysis of the effects of chewing on digestive inflammation, RCH, Crohn's
  • State of the microbiota between a fast eater and a slow eater
  • Analysis applied to hepatic steatosis
  • Prevalence of fast-eating behavior in the population, and by related age or behavioral criteria
  • Evaluation of food waste between a fast eater and a slow eater

Do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to collaborate on the pursuit of new studies.
