The FIRST and ONLY FDA-approved 6-month, swallowable, gas-filled weight loss balloon system.
Incidence of serious events in the SMART trial (n=1/336)
of extensive research and testing, resulting in next-generation of weight loss balloons. FDA approval was based on the most rigorous study design: double-blinded, randomized and sham-controlled.
patients have received the Obalon Balloon System worldwide.
Obalon bridges the gap between diet and exercise and surgery for patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 to 40 kg/m2
Swallowable: Non-surgical placement – The patient swallows a capsule with no anesthesia. Administration is discreet. It takes about 10 minutes with no down time for the patient.
Progressive Doses of Volume: Progressive weight loss – Adding balloons over time gradually increases the volume of occupied stomach space. Balloons are designed to help patients overcome weight loss plateaus and minimize side effects.
Floats: Feel fuller faster – Obalon balloons are gas-filled and float to the top of the stomach. Designed to reduce adverse symptoms and improve tolerability.
Pivotal Trial Highlights of 160 patients1
Patients in the SMART trial lost twice as much weight with Obalon combined with diet and exercise vs. diet and exercise alone.
Average weight lost kept off six months after balloons were removed. *

What Makes Obalon Different
"I’m very excited to have Obalon in my practice, patients are already calling and asking about it."
"I can do more balloons per day, Obalon is a better use of my time and, in the end, generates more revenue for my practice."
"One of the most remarkable findings in the clinical trial was that patients were able to keep their weight loss."
"The accessibility and privacy of just swallowing it and just going home, having it in place…that’s everything."
"The SMART trial which looked at the effects of the Obalon system was a very rigorous trial, it's considered one of the Gold Standards of studies when we look at devices."

The Obalon Balloon System is a swallowable intragastric balloon system indicated for temporary use to facilitate weight loss in adults with obesity (BMI of 30 – 40 kg/m2) who have failed to lose weight through diet and exercise. The System is intended to be used as an adjunct to a moderate intensity diet and behavior modification program. All balloons must be removed six months after the first balloon is placed.
