Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Comparison of Treatment % Excess Weight Loss (EWL) With Control %EWL at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    An inferential test of whether the difference in the mean %EWL between the Treatment and Control groups at 24 weeks was significantly greater than a superiority margin 7.5%.

  2. Treatment Group Responder Rate Dichotomized at 25% EWL [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    An inferential test of whether the percentage of participants in the Treatment Group with a weight loss of >25% EWL at 24 weeks was significantly greater than 35%.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Weight Loss Maintenance Six Months Following Device Removal [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]
    Assess whether significantly greater than 50% of treatment subjects maintained 40% of their excess weight loss at 48 weeks.
