British health-tech company Neurovalens has presented their Careable tech headset “Modius”, which helps the human body to lose weight by using electric stimulation and activating the brain’s hypothalamus.

CEO and co-founder neuroscientist Dr. Jason McKeown said the nerve stimulation is interpreted by the brain as a signal to reduce body weight, decreasing your appetite and enhancing your metabolism.
