Allurion Technologies is a medical device company that specializes in developing and commercializing weight loss solutions. The company was founded in 2009 and is based in Natick, Massachusetts.
Allurion’s flagship product is the Elipse Balloon, which is a non-surgical weight loss solution. The Elipse Balloon is a swallowable capsule that contains a deflated balloon, which is then filled with fluid once it reaches the stomach. The balloon takes up space in the stomach, making the patient feel full and eat less.
The Elipse Balloon is unique in that it does not require surgery, endoscopy, or anesthesia to be placed in the stomach. Instead, the patient swallows the capsule during a quick outpatient visit and the balloon is automatically inflated once it reaches the stomach. After approximately four months, the balloon deflates and passes naturally through the digestive system.
Allurion is committed to making weight loss more accessible and affordable for people around the world. The company’s innovative approach to weight loss has been recognized by numerous organizations, including the World Economic Forum, which named Allurion a Technology Pioneer in 2020.

1 – Elipse™
Elipse™ is a swallowable gastric balloon designed to aid in weight loss. It is a non-surgical and non-invasive option for people who struggle to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. The Elipse™ balloon is made of a soft and flexible material that can be inflated with a sterile saline solution after it is swallowed.
The balloon takes up space in the stomach, making the patient feel full and therefore less likely to overeat. The Elipse™ balloon is designed to stay in the stomach for approximately 16 weeks before it is naturally excreted from the body. During this time, patients are encouraged to follow a healthy diet and exercise program to maximize their weight loss.
