The Drs: Abiliti Weight Loss Device

Liz shared information on Abiliti, a new device that could help solve the problem of obesity. This “intelligent” weight loss device has already resulted in an average weight loss of 22% in clinical studies. Some people lost nearly 40% of their body weight.

Abiliti is essentially a “stomach pace maker” that sends the “full” signal to your brain. This prevents overeating, and best of all, your doctor can chart your results.

The Doctors: Micro Stent To Fix Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a common issue that often leads to blindness. Dr. Travis explained it as “increased pressure in your eye,” caused by a buildup of fluid. So far, the only solutions for glaucoma have been laser treatments and complex surgeries. Now, a device that’s the size of an eyelash could help treat this issue.

This device is a micro stent inserted into a canal of the eye. It allows fluids to flow properly and relieves pressure in the eye. Dr. Andrew Ordon called this “a huge innovation.”

The Doctors: Re-Timer Cure For Jet Lag

The Re-Timer cure for jet lag was developed by a sleep psychologist to solve this relatively harmless, but extremely annoying, health issue. These high-tech glasses feature a green light that helps reset your body’s internal clock. They should be worn 2-3 times a day after you arrive at your destination (just maybe not in public).

Learn all about these high-tech new gadgets in the videos below.
