AB Mando is a privately owned healthcare company with five Mandometer Clinics in three countries. We treat anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, along with all other eating disorders using the Mandometer Method.

AB Mando is part of the Mando Group AB, along with Mandolean AB, which offers treatment for overweight and obesity, and Mandometer AB that manages and administrates the patent rights. In addition to providing specialist care for eating disorders, the Mando Group also provides education, conducts research, and undertakes continual technological development with the aim of improving care for patients with eating disorders and obesity. The philosophy of the company emphasises the importance of joy and doing good for human kind, whereby resources are used effectively for patients to receive the appropriate level of care.

The Mando Group was started by Dr Cecilia Bergh and Professor Per Södersten after many years of research devoted to understanding eating behaviour and satiety at the Karolinska Institute, Sweden’s foremost medical school.

Research on the Mandometer Method has been published in several of the world’s leading medical and scientific journals, such as the Lancet, PNAS, Nature Medicine and Frontiers in Neuroendocrinology. Research conducted in collaboration with the Karolinska Institute has generated twelve doctoral theses and approximately 200 peer reviewed articles.
