Right now, doctors are conducting the REDUCE Clinical Trial. The trial is evaluating the ReShape Duo™ Weight Loss Balloon System, an investigational device for weight loss that does not involve surgery or incisions. The trial also includes a comprehensive weight loss support program overseen by a team of dietitians, doctors and nurses.
REDUCE Clinical Trial Overview
If you qualify and choose to participate in the REDUCE Clinical Trial, you will receive study-related care at no cost. This includes the ReShape Duo system, as well as a comprehensive weight loss support program. You may also be compensated for your time and travel.
The ReShape Duo is place in the stomach during a 30-minute outpatient procedure called an endoscopy – using a thin flexible tube that is passed through the mouth and into the stomach. If you meet the criteria for the REDUCE Trial and choose to continue, you will be scheduled for an endoscopy. If your endoscopy shows that you qualify to receive the ReShape Duo, you will have the ReShape Duo placed at that time.
Your participation in the study will last about 7-8 months. During this time, you will visit your study doctor’s office, approximately once per month, to receive diet and exercise counseling at no cost, while also providing feedback about your experience. These visits are an important part of the study, and are designed to keep you on track with your weight loss program.
