Note 1 - Description of Business
Motus GI Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in Delaware, U.S.A. in September 2016. The Company and its subsidiaries, Motus, Ltd. and Motus, Inc., are collectively referred to as “Motus GI” or the “Company”.
The Company has developed a single-use medical device system, the Pure-Vu system, cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration and which has received CE Mark approval in the European Economic Area, that is intended to attach to standard colonoscopes to help facilitate intraprocedural cleaning of a poorly prepared colon by irrigating or cleaning the colon and evacuating the irrigation fluid (water), feces and other bodily fluids and matter. The Pure-Vu system has been designed to integrate with standard colonoscopes to enable cleaning during the procedure while preserving standard procedural workflow and techniques. Challenges with bowel preparation for inpatient colonoscopy represent a significant area of unmet need that directly affects clinical outcomes and increases the cost of care for a hospital in a market segment where most of the reimbursement is under a bundle payment based on a DRG (Diagnostic Related Group). The Pure-Vu system does not currently have a unique reimbursement code with any private or governmental third-party payors in any country. To date, as part of the Company’s limited market development launch, the Company has focused on collecting additional clinical and health economic data, as exemplified by the recently initiated Reliable Endoscopic Diagnosis Utilizing Cleansing Enhancement Study (the “REDUCE Study”), along with garnering valuable experience in key hospitals on the use of the Pure-Vu system to support a full launch in the United States inpatient market in 2019. The Company does not expect to generate significant revenue from product sales unless and until the Company expands its commercialization efforts.
