The Chinese Patent Office awarded Motus GI a patent for its Pure-Vu System for cleaning the colon during colonoscopy procedures to improve visualization.
The device integrates with standard colonoscopes to enable cleaning during the procedure while preserving standard procedural workflow and techniques.
The system previously received 510(k) clearance from the FDA and CE Mark approval in Europe. It is currently being introduced on a pilot basis in the U.S. market. The company is planning to initiate a broader commercial launch in the U.S. and select international markets in 2019.
