The Pure-Vu System is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared medical device indicated to help facilitate the cleaning of a poorly prepared colon during the colonoscopy procedure. The device integrates with standard and slim colonoscopes to enable safe and rapid cleansing during the procedure while preserving established procedural workflow and techniques.
“We continue to add to our extensive IP portfolio which is now comprised of over 20 patents worldwide, covering all aspects of the Pure-Vu System. Intellectual property continues to be a key focus, particularly as we prepare for the commercial launch of Pure-Vu next quarter,” commented Tim Moran, CEO of Motus GI. “To complement our IP portfolio, we are actively generating robust clinical data which we believe demonstrates the Pure-Vu System’s ability to reduce the number of delayed and incomplete procedures in the inpatient setting, a significant issue where more than half of patients present with an insufficiently prepped colon, leading to additional costs. Our ongoing REDUCE study is evaluating the Pure-Vu System’s ability to consistently and reliably cleanse the colon to facilitate a successful colonoscopy in a timely manner in patients who are indicated for a diagnostic colonoscopy.”
Motus GI Holdings Inc. is a medical technology company, with subsidiaries in the United States and Israel, dedicated to improving clinical outcomes and enhancing the cost-efficiency of colonoscopy. The company’s flagship product is the Pure-Vu System, an FDA-cleared medical device indicated to help facilitate the cleaning of a poorly prepared colon during the colonoscopy procedure. The device integrates with standard and slim colonoscopes to enable safe and rapid cleansing during the procedure while preserving established procedural workflow and techniques. The Pure-Vu System has received CE mark approval in Europe. The Pure-VuSystem is currently being introduced on a pilot basis in the U.S. market, and the company is planning to initiate a full commercial launch focused on the inpatient colonoscopy market in the United States and select international markets in 2019. Challenges with bowel preparation for inpatient colonoscopy represent a significant area of unmet need that directly affects clinical outcomes and increases the cost of care in a market segment that comprises approximately 1.5 million annual procedures in the United States and approximately 4 million annual procedures worldwide. Motus GI believes the Pure-Vu System may improve outcomes and lower costs for hospitals by reducing the time to successful colonoscopy, minimizing delayed and incomplete procedures, and improving the quality of an exam. In clinical studies to date, the Pure-Vu System significantly increased the number of patients with an adequate cleansing level, according to the Boston Bowel Preparation Scale Score, a validated assessment instrument.
