Innurvation’s Capsule Endoscopy Technology Dramatically Improves Gastroenterologist's Productivity
Eat a light meal before traveling to your doctor - no clean-out or fasting required!* At your appointment your doctor will attach sensors to your abdomen and hook a small phone-sized patient data unit (PDU) to the outside of your clothing. Then you swallow the disposable Innurvision capsule. After verifying that the capsule and PDU are communicating, you are free to go about your normal day while a high resolution continuous image is scanned of your intestinal tract and securely transmitted to the cloud. At the end of the day, you can remove the PDU. Your scanned image is automatically evaluated against thousands of similar scans for diagnostic advice. Your doctor reviews these results, and reviews the image for a formal diagnosis. At your follow-up appointment, you return the PDU and sensors and review your results. The capsule passes naturally out of your system.
* Innurvation Gen 3
The first generation Innurvation solution includes a disposable 360 degree field-of-view imaging capsule, sensors for use on the patient to receive capsule data, a patient data recorder, and wireless data upload to the cloud for viewing.
The second generation solution replaces radio frequency data communication with acoustic communication to increase battery life and enable locationing throughout the intestinal tract.
Innurvation's third generation solution disrupts the gastrointestinal speciality with in-capsule acoustic imaging, eliminating the need for clean-out and providing unlimited opportunities for analytics and diagnostic capabilities aided by artificial intelligence
Value to the field of gastroenterology (GI): Creation of the largest GI tract dataset for enhanced “big data”analytics and application of artificial intelligence (AI) to aid in diagnostic advice.
As the population dataset grows, capsule endoscopy will no longer require a specialist, General Practitioners (GPs) will be able to perform a capsule endoscopy and determine initial findings with the assistance of artificial intelligence, expanding the availability of the procedure to the general population.
Innurvation is using low power acoustics for the transmission of data in the second generation solution. This allows for the transmission of data in a low noise environment resulting in the ability to minimize the power required to transmit data and increasing the operational lifetime of the pill over competitive approaches.
Innurvation’s first generation capsule endoscopy technology dramatically improves gastroenterologist's productivity vs endoscopy or incumbent capsule solutions. ﾠThe solution includes a disposable 360 degree field-of-view imaging capsule, sensors for use on the patient to receive capsule data, a patient data recorder, and wireless data upload to the cloud for viewing
Acoustic imaging eliminates the need for pre-procedure clean-out which will transform the patient experience and increase the likelihood of patients taking advantage of preventative diagnostics.
Innurvation is dedicated to becoming the world leader in developing non-invasive diagnostic systems for the gastrointestinal tract.
