By September 1, 2016 No Comments

Today, excessive intake of salt is a global problem. A lot of patients at the Ishii clinic suffer from complications caused by excessive intake of salt. And these patients become unable to eat flavorful meals using salts. That’s why Ishii clinic, along with the production team at J. Walter Thompson Japan and the University of Tokyo, invented the Electro Fork for these patients. With the Electro Fork, electronic stimulation is applied to the tongue, utilizing the technology of augmented gustation. That way, even foods without salt can be given a delicious salt flavour! Even the No Salt Restaurant, featuring this fork, was opened.
