Motus GI Holdings, Inc., a medical technology company focused on enhancing endoscopic outcomes, has announced that it has secured clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its new Pure-Vu EVS Gastro and Gen 4 Colon system. This clearance paves the way for the company to tap into the upper gastrointestinal (GI) market, addressing the needs of patients with upper GI bleeds, a condition with high mortality rates. The new Pure-Vu systems offer significant improvements over previous models, aiming to provide better visualization in both the upper and lower GI tracts. These advancements include a more powerful suction channel, efficient irrigation jets, and a smaller profile distal tip. The company plans to introduce the new Pure-Vu EVS platform to the market by the end of the year.
