G-Tech is developing a wearable medical technology that will be used to measure gastrointestinal (GI) motility. The G-Tech system consists of wireless, wearable electrode patches that read electrical signals at the skin surface, a smartphone app that collects the raw data from the patches via Bluetooth LE and sends it to a cloud server, and data analysis algorithms that process and quantify the motor activity of the digestive organs.
The patches are conforming, water resistant, thin, light and completely non-invasive. Although wearable and smartphone connected, the G-Tech system is a medical device that will be used under the supervision of physicians rather than a consumer item. The physician will analyze the data in an application provided by G-Tech that embodies expert knowledge of the signals, and the patterns they form for diagnosis and treatment/disease monitoring.
G-Tech’s Patch System is focused on meeting market driven and clinical needs to create a new standard of care that both dramatically improves outcomes and reduces costs associated with GI conditions. The inexpensive, accurate, and easy to use real-time ability to assess activity of the GI organs provides the potential to transform care for patients, providers and institutions.
