_Aspiration Therapy has clinical experience with 24 obese patients over three trials in the US and internationally. Patients in the trials had a Body Mass Index (BMI) ranging between 35 and 49 kg/m2. In aggregate, there are more than 35 patient-years of experience using Aspiration Therapy.
In our U.S. clinical trial, patients lost, on average, over 20 kgs (45 lbs) in the first year (or 49% excess weight loss). The most successful patients – those who aspirate regularly and begin to make healthier choices – lost 100% of their excess weight and have maintained that weight loss. Compared to other approaches, the AspireAssist has similar results without requiring invasive alterations to the anatomy or digestive process.
