Scientists created a controversial weight-loss device that locks people's jaws shut. Researchers are facing backlash over the first weight loss device that forces people to stick to liquid diets by locking their jaws shut. It's called the DentalSlim Diet Control that was developed by researchers at New Zealand's University of Otago, it's a magnetic contraption fitted to patients upper and lower back teeth uses locking bolts to prevent them from properly opening their mouths and eating solid foods.

Here's how they describe it:

It allows the wearer to open their mouths only about 2mm, restricting them to a liquid diet, but it allows free speech and doesn’t restrict breathing. Participants in a Dunedin-based trial lost an average of 6.36kg [about 14 pounds] in two weeks and were motivated to continue with their weight loss journey.”
