"An EKG for the GUT"
Current options for assessing gastrointestinal activity to evaluate motility disorders are inadequate. Existing approaches typically assess only a single organ, are invasive, and are performed under artificial conditions for a short period of time.
G-Tech has developed a wireless wearable patch that measures GI motility of the stomach, small intestines and colon non-invasively over multiple days. Over 500 tests have been run under IRB approvals, resulting in 4 peer reviewed publications and numerous conference posters. Over time we envision that the patch system will be used whenever motility is a concern, such as in patients with IBD, or as a means of determining readiness of feeding in post-operative care.
The patch system is not currently available for sale and does not have regulatory clearance or approval.
The G-Tech System is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other condition, or in the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease in humans or any other animal. The G-Tech System is for research use only. It is not available for purchase in the United States.
