Company Summary

20M annual US doctor visits for lower GI issues such as abdominal pain, constipation and diarrhea create a multi-billion dollar market opportunity. Typically patients endure multiple expensive tests - CT scans, colonoscopies, and other invasive procedures - only to have anatomical issues ruled out, but without a positive diagnosis. Clinical data shows we will identify functional disorders directly, faster, and at lower cost than current practice.
