IntraPace, Inc. announced today that it has received European CE Mark for the connect.abiliti Wand H102. The device provides wireless access to personal eating and exercise data to patients with an abiliti system, a unique approach to the treatment of obesity that uses gastric stimulation to help patients feel full sooner. Together with the abiliti system, connect.abiliti enables daily self monitoring of patient behavior at home. Previously, this critical data could only be retrieved during a physician office visit.
Clinical studies demonstrate that achieving and maintaining significant weight loss requires ongoing self monitoring and lifestyle management. Bringing ease and accuracy to the process of self monitoring, connect.abiliti allows immediate access to automatically recorded patient data, including food consumption and physical activity. This information supports the development of effective, personalized weight loss management plans, thereby improving patient results.
"connect.abiliti provides patients with objective, real-time data about their eating and exercise habits that, for the first time, empowers them to make smart decisions and take full control of their weight loss journey," said Chuck Brynelsen, CEO of IntraPace.
The abiliti system employs food detection and activity sensors to continuously monitor and store a person's eating and exercise behavior on the implanted device. Using the connect.abiliti wand, abiliti system patients can wirelessly retrieve the food consumption and physical activity data recorded by their abiliti device and then view it on their personal computer. They may also share this data at their discretion on my.abiliti.com, an online portal and support network for abiliti peers, their friends and family, and healthcare professionals.
