Device of the week: HAPIfork

Eating too fast leads to poor digestion and poor weight control. The HAPIfork, powered by Slow Control, is an electronic fork that helps you monitor and track your eating habits. It also alerts you with the help of indicator lights and gentle vibrations when you are eating too fast. Every time you bring food from your plate to your mouth with your fork, this action is called: a “fork serving“. The HAPIfork also measures:

* How long it took to eat your meal.
* The amount of “fork servings” taken per minute.
* Intervals between “fork servings”.

This information is then uploaded via USB or Bluetooth to your Online Dashboard on to track your progress. The HAPIfork also comes with the HAPIfork and apps plus a coaching program to help improve your eating behavior.

HAPIfork is a connected smart fork which lets you adopt healthy eating habits:

  • Eat at the right time
  • Eat at the right pace: not too fast
  • Follow a coaching program
  • Share with the community
