Digestible Balloon Therapy

Simple Concept

The use of the Digestible Balloon will allow a pharmaceutical ‘pill’ approach to delivery of a stomach space filling device for hunger control. There are literally 10’s of millions of overweight and obese individuals that can be classified as pre-diabetic or otherwise suffering from their condition with physical issues. The numbers of individuals overwhelms the ability of the healthcare community to provide bariatric therapy, in the form of bypass surgery, laparoscopic banding or endoscopic intragastric balloon insertion and removal. A self inflating device that is eliminated over time by natural digestive action is a simple approach to this problem for many individuals.
