Motus GI Holdings Inc., a medical technology company, announced the first successful completion of colonoscopies using the company’s Pure-Vu Slim Sleeve.
“Based on my initial experience, I am impressed with the usability and effectiveness of the Pure-Vu Slim Sleeve, especially the fact that the cleaning performance of the Pure-Vu Slim Sleeve is just as powerful as the Pure-Vu Sleeve,” Melissa Latorre, MD, a gastroenterologist at NYU Langone Health, said in a press release. “Being able to utilize the Pure-Vu System in critically ill inpatients to improve and expedite care is where I have found the slim colonoscope most advantageous.”
Recently, the FDA issued 510(k) clearance to the company for the commercialization of the Pure-Vu Slim Sleeve.
According to the release, 15 colonoscopies were completed in October at select hospitals using the Pure-Vu Slim Sleeve
