In their daily practice, gastroenterologists mostly use laboratory tests
to diagnose infections and endoscopic devices to exclude organic lesions.
But they have limited means of exploring the dysfunctions of the digestive
tract in case of symptoms such as constipation, nausea, dyspepsia,
bloating or spasms.
Current diagnostic techniques (manometry, pH-metry, radiology, scintigraphy)
yield insufficient information for the physician to rapidly and in a cost
effective way asses and treat the patient.
The shortcomings are principally that the information is limited to short
segments of the GI tract and over a limited period of time, there is no
information about the dynamics of the transit, and in addition the patient
has to endure a most uncomfortable and invasive procedure.
Motilis enables a functional exploration solution that gastroenterologists’ can
utilize in their daily practice, complementary to laboratory and endoscopic
Gastrointestinal dysfunctions are very common and affect up to 20% of
the population. Motilis has the unique ability to monitor regional
transit time thus significantly improving speed of diagnosis and effectiveness
Dysmotility is implicated in such functional disorders as
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
The non-invasiveness of Motilis’ method, and the small size of
the capsules, will make it suitable for patient of paediatric age. The
prevalence of functional troubles in children is significant, especially
Motilis answers the critical questions:
- Where is the problem located?
- Is it permanent or intermittent?
- Does it respond to the therapy?
With an accurate analysis of regional transit time Motilis improves the
management of the patient’s diagnosis and therapy. Exclusion examinations
are not required and effective drugs are prescribed.
Avoid risk and pain associated with more invasive exams.
Faster and more cost effective treatment.
For medical practitioners:
Patient treatment in physician’s office.
Expansion of service level at practice.
Fast data collection / interpretation resulting in better control of
Patient friendly treatment with minimal inconvenience.
