From: Effects of eating with an augmented fork with vibrotactile feedback on eating rate and body weight: a randomized controlled trial

  NFC VFC VFC+
T1 5 (2–15) 5 (2–28) 5 (3–15)
Intervention period 24 (7–66) 23 (9–75) 23 (7–79)
T2 5 (1–14) 4 (1–14) 5 (1–17)
T3 5 (2–13) 5 (2–17) 5 (2–20)
  1. aNFC no feedback condition, VFC vibrotactile feedback condition, VFC+ vibrotactile + visual feedback condition
  2. T1: baseline measurement before the intervention period; T2: follow-up measurement directly after the intervention period; T3: follow-up measurement eight weeks after the intervention period. During these five-day measurement periods, subjects were instructed to eat as many meals as possible with the 10sFork, with all feedback switched off
