The Maestro RC System is a device like pacemaker. The device affects the physiology of hunger and fullness without enforcing punitive, mechanical limits to lifestyle and diet or does not even require surgical alteration of the anatomy.

Clinical trials are going on to evaluate the safety and efficacy of VBLOC therapy for treating obesity.
