Benefits of the Spatz3 intragastric balloon vs. comparable products
The Spatz3 intragastric balloon is a non-surgical treatment. This means no incisions, no scars, and no wounds to heal. For you, this means significantly less risk. Moreover, the temporary nature of the treatment gives you the flexibility to continue your new lifestyle even after the duration of the therapy, without any restrictive medical measures.
Compared to other comparable products, the biggest benefit with the Spatz3 is that you can wear it twice as long. With this treatment it’s now possible to take advantage of having a whole year to adapt and change your lifestyle and previous habits. This reduces the pressure for rapid weight loss and makes it easier to re-adapt and continue your journey once the balloon is removed.
No medication required. Fewer risks.
There is no need for further medication after inserting the balloon. This means that you are not exposed to any additional risks or undesirable side effects. This treatment gives you the freedom you have always wanted, while at the same time providing you with an internal coach who is always attentive to the frequency and amount of your food intake.
Thanks for the innovative anchor system of the intragastric balloon, the Spatz3 also eliminates the risk of the balloon slipping into the wider digestive tract e.g. in the rare event of the balloon emptying due to a defect. In the rare event of a defect, the anchor system makes it easy to be removed and replaced via the esophagus and mouth using a gastroscopy.
Lose weight from day 1
Unlike alternative weight loss methods, with the Spatz3 intragastric balloon you will lose weight from day one. On top of this, you have an additional advantage: it can be adjusted after being placed in the stomach! This means that the volume of the balloon can be flexibly adjusted to your needs during a further gastroscopy. For example, should you experience significant discomfort or have difficulties adjusting to the balloon, the volume can be reduced, making it more comfortable for you. If on the other hand, your weight loss progress has slowed or you’re looking for a more noticeable effect, the volume can be increased. This would mean that the Spatz3 would take up a slightly larger space in your stomach and can help regulate your food intake even better.
Our experience shows that weight loss continues after balloon adjustment
We have observed that with the new Spatz3, weight loss noticeably continues throughout the second phase after adjustment and adaptation. Due to the longer therapy time, our patients lose up to 30% more weight and are able to sustain this weight loss after treatment.
