At Lumendi we are dedicated to finding technological solutions that positively impact both patients and their doctors. Our medical devices are designed to help improve existing procedures and facilitate the development of new ones that will lead to improved outcomes for patients and lower costs to the healthcare system.
Lumendi’s endolumenal interventional platform is designed to enhance and facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of colorectal disease through a less invasive approach.
Our core principles are focused on improving safety, reducing complications, and enabling new approaches to therapy, resulting in shorter hospital stays and a faster return to normal activity for patients.
These surgical tools and clinical improvements will also provide economic value to the healthcare system as patients recover faster and return to their daily lives sooner.
Lumendi’s patented balloon overtube technology is designed to create a therapeutic zone within the large intestine that:
- stabilizes the endoscope tip in relation to the intestinal wall,
- increases visualization – especially around bends and folds,
- expands the colon wall, flattens folds and straightens flexures, and
- enables fast local insufflation.
Lumendi is currently in the process of commercializing this technology and plans to have it available by 2017.
