A Lap Band is a rigid, belt like device which is tightly fastened around the stomach to dramatically decrease its size. After the procedure, only very small amounts of food can be digested by the stomach before the patient feels uncomfortably "full" and cannot eat anymore. Inspired by the way that traditional gastric band surgery works, the virtual gastric band greatly restricts the amount of food that can be digested by the body, but without using any invasive and expensive medical procedures.
