Swallowable Gastric Balloon

It is an ingestible medical device to help patients achieve weight loss in cases of overweight and obesity. The Ingestible Balloon consists of a capsule that contains a silicone balloon inside, which is swallowed with the help of a doctor and only a glass of water.

The capsule-shaped Balloon contains a thin catheter through which it is filled with water until it reaches a size of approximately 550 milliliters. This procedure takes about 15 minutes and does not require hospitalization. By occupying space in your stomach, the balloon will make you feel full faster and help you reduce food intake and achieve weight loss.
