"An EKG for the GUT"
Over 40 million patients visit gastroenterologists for GI conditions every year. Current options for assessing gastrointestinal activity to evaluate motility disorders are inadequate. G-Tech Medical has developed a disruptive technology to address this need.
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 600 tests have been run under IRB approvals, resulting in 4 peer reviewed publications and numerous conference posters, and providing key insights into the science of motility.
We envision that this breakthrough patch system ultimately will be used whenever motility is a concern, such as in patients with IBD, IBS or other functional GI disorder, 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.
