Mando Group AB has developed a non-invasive treatment for eating disorders and a weight loss treatment that is based on 25 years of clinical research in collaboration with the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.
Mando Group AB is a privately owned healthcare company with six clinics in three countries.
We treat weight loss and eating disorders with the aid of the patented Mandometer® medical device.

The treatment is based on scientific evidence obtained in randomized controlled clinical trials, which demonstrated its effectiveness in treating eating disorders and obesity. 75% of eating disorders patients go into remission in about a year, only 10% relapse over five years of follow-up.

Mandolean treatment is more effective than a standard weight loss program. With the Mandometer medical device, the weight loss is maintained, and biological signals for hunger and fullness are re-established.

Mandometer treatment is a standard treatment in Sweden for eating disorders since 1997. Mandometer treatment is available in Australia, the United States and Sweden and the 90 people who are employed in the company have brought 1400 eating disorders patients into remission, reducing public spending by some €560 million.
