The Elipse Balloon
for WEIGHT LOSS

No surgery. No endoscopy. No anesthesia.

If you’ve been unable to lose weight through diets alone, and are not interested in invasive weight loss surgery, then you may qualify for the ENLIGHTEN Clinical Study. The study is evaluating the Elipse™ Balloon – an investigational device for weight loss that does not involve surgery or incisions.

If you participate in the ENLIGHTEN Study you will receive study-related care at no cost. This includes the Elipse Balloon, as well as a comprehensive weight loss support program.

The Elipse Balloon

The Elipse Balloon is an investigational gastric balloon for weight loss, currently being offered at select U.S. centers through the ENLIGHTEN Clinical Study. The Elipse Balloon is designed to occupy space in your stomach to help you feel fuller, eat smaller portions and lose weight. And unlike other weight loss options, the Elipse Balloon requires no surgery, no endoscopy, and no anesthesia.

Getting the Elipse Balloon takes about 15 minutes. The balloon comes in a capsule with a thin tube. You simply swallow the capsule while your doctor takes a quick x-ray to make sure the balloon is in your stomach. Once in place, the balloon is filled with water and the tube is removed, completing the process.

The Elipse Balloon remains in the stomach for about 4 months, serving as built-in portion control while you learn to live a healthier lifestyle with the support of nutritionists, doctors, and nurses. The Elipse Balloon removes itself – no doctor visit is required. After about 4 months, the balloon will empty on its own and pass naturally.
