Aspire Assist

« Back to Glossary Index

The treatment of obesity is always changing, with new techniques being developed and existing ones being altered. One such technique that is currently being developed is Aspire Assist. This technique involves placing a small tube in the stomach that is connected to an external pump. The pump then drains a portion of the food that has been consumed, before it enters the intestines.

 

There are several potential benefits of this technique. First, it can help people to feel fuller after eating, as some of the food will have already been removed from their stomachs. Second, it can help to reduce the number of calories that are absorbed from food, as less food will reach the intestines. Finally, it can also help to reduce the risk of developing obesity-related health problems such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

At present, Aspire Assist is still in the development stage and has not yet been approved for use in humans. However, it shows promise as a potential treatment for obesity, and further research is required to assess its safety and effectiveness.
