TIRAT CARMEL, Israel, Oct. 18, 2016 – MOTUS GI, a medical device company dedicated to improving colonoscopy outcomes and experiences, announced today the presentation of data demonstrating that the use of the Pure-Vu System during colonoscopy significantly increased the number patients with adequately cleansed colons. The positive data were presented today by Dr. Javier Perez Jimenez, Medical Director of the San Rafael Hospital in Cadiz, Spain, during a session at the United European Gastroenterology Week in Vienna. The presentation is available at www.motusgi.com.
“In as many as 20% of the over 30 million colonoscopies performed worldwide each year, patients are inadequately prepped resulting in increased rates of missed lesions, earlier repeat procedures, prolonged colonoscopy duration, reduced patient satisfaction and increased costs,” said Dr. Perez Jimenez. “The Pure-Vu System was found to be simple, safe and effective in cleaning inadequately prepared colons to an adequate level to allow for a thorough exam.”
