System is a non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical alternative for the treatment of obesity. The BIB® System is designed to provide short-term weight loss therapy to reduce health risks related to obesity or risks prior to vital surgery, or as part of a supervised weight loss program.
The intragastric balloon is designed to assist with weight loss in people who ideally have 10 kilograms or more of weight to lose, or those individuals with a BMI greater than 27. It is also used for people who are not suitable candidates for weight loss surgery. The use of the balloon may assist in reducing weight prior to any surgery, therefore reducing the risks associated with surgical procedures. The Gastric Balloon is the ideal noninvasive alternative to gastric bypass surgery, lap band surgery and other bariatric surgeries.
