MOTUS GI, an Israeli firm, received European CE Mark of approval for its Pure-Vu colon cleansing system, designed to alleviate the necessity to fast and making sure the colon can be clearly examined. The technology can be important because many patients go in for a colonoscopy without properly cleansing their bowels, resulting in difficulty for the physician to notice any polyps or lesions. Using the Pure-Vu, the clinicians can wash out the insides of the patient and get to examining the colon with impressive clarity.
The Pure-Vu works with most colonoscopes used in practice today and it uses four sprinklers coupled with suction to irrigate and evacuate the colon. A foot pedal is used to engage the sprinklers, allowing the physician to target muck within the colon and wash it away wherever it’s impeding a clear view.
Any clogs within the suction channel are immediately detected, causing the system to automatically purge itself and begin again once more crap can move through.
The device does not block the view of the colonoscope or the functionality of the working channels, so biopsies can still be taken and other procedures are not hindered.
Here’s an animation demonstrating how the device is used:
