Elipse – Easiest And Affordable Way For Weight Loss

Obesity is a widespread problem around the globe, affecting the health and life of many, which is rising at an alarming rate.  Poor diet is one of the common factors, other than medical conditions. In comparison to poor diet, the ratio of obesity because of medical conditions is very low. Excessive weight is responsible for various diseases, degrading health quality. Ample of gadgets, technology, and medical methods are available to reduce weight, but a few of them helps on the absolute level.

Among all, the healthiest way is to follow a good routine to reduce weight with a healthy diet. A cosmopolitan finds it hard to stick to health regimes due to increasing work pressures and of course we are connected to chains of restaurants around us for convenience, It is easier to get fast foods compared to a rich nutritious meal.

Without planned diet and exercise another way to curb obesity is to go with the medical process called intra-gastric balloon. A quiet popular method for those who do not prefer going with a long and tough dieting plan, they can try out intra-gastric balloon to keep them away from eating too much. It is based on a simple methodology of keeping your stomach occupied so that you can avoid eating too much. It has two methods, first is introducing the balloon in the stomach through the mouth and then filled with saline, and the second is by surgery. In both cases, it requires medical supervision and involves high cost.


Allurion Technologies a Massachusetts-based Startup is working on a new and simpler way to curb obesity. It has a unique product “Elipse” that can be used by anyone and does not demand medical supervision. The procedure and equipment used are yet not officially approved.

Elipse is a procedure less intra-gastric balloon that can be swallowed in the form of the pill, later it expands in the stomach. It can stay for months and can be flushed from the body through the toilet. It does not require any special clinical supervision. After the product is finalized and approved by authorities it can help many to curb obesity just by swallowing a pill. It stays in the intestine and occupy space, reducing the amount of food intake, that later can contribute to weight loss, easiest way to eat less. Elipse is available in Europe, and Allurion Technologies planned to sell it in another region after getting official approval.
