The Obalon Balloon is the first balloon that allows for placement by simply swallowing a capsule. No sedation or anesthesia is required. The balloon uses advanced materials specifically designed to meet the rigors of the gastric environment. The capsule delivery allows placement of additional balloons to stimulate further weight loss over a 3-month treatment period. A buoyant balloon residing in the fundus with a smaller initial balloon size makes the balloon easy to tolerate. The result is a first choice weight loss therapy that helps patients feel full faster so they eat less and achieve their weight loss goals.
