HyGIeaCare’s patent covers methods and systems for large intestine contents' diagnosis and acoustic characterization
NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hygieacare Inc. announced today that the USPTO issued the Company’s second patent – US Patent Number 10,244,980. The patent relates, among others, to methods and systems that are applicable in Hygieacare Systems, in which water is introduced, controllably, into a patient’s large intestine, acoustic signals are sensed at the patient’s abdomen, and large intestine diagnostic characteristics are derived by analyzing the sensed acoustic signals associated with the water introduction – to provide a large intestine diagnosis of the patient.
Since inception in 2015 Hygieacare has established Hygieacare Centers providing bowel preparation without many of the associated side effects of the current preparation and with consistently high cleanliness rates. More than 11,000 patients have performed the prep with 98% of them having an adequately clean colon, with ZERO serious adverse events and excellent patient and physician feedback. Additionally, more than 600 patients have benefited from Hygieacare constipation relief with 100% success and zero adverse events.
Hygieacare is gearing up to establish a global Platform upon which additional patented offerings can be developed and brought to market, enhancing the value of each Hygieacare Center procedure.
“This patent supports our strategy of developing novel diagnostic tools for gastroenterologists to provide better and more comprehensive patient care,” said Gavriel Meron, Chairman and CEO of Hygieacare. “As patients screen to prevent colorectal cancer, we envision providing non-invasive information, enhancing overall patient care by gastroenterologists.”
