Suffer from GERD?
(Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease)
We are developing a device that aims to alleviate GERD symptoms (heartburn, regurgitation, difficult swallowing, etc.) and improve your quality of life.
Help us in our clinical study
Investors are welcome
GerdCare Medical is developing a noninvasive device that is applied by the patient onto the abdominal skin. The device electrically stimulates the abdominal muscles by a pair of electrodes with specific current wave forms. The electrical pulses generate abdominal muscles asymmetrical contractions. These contractions generate forward and “fast back” displacement of the esophagus (via the stomach) causing the remaining materials shift back to the stomach. Synchronization with the breathing phase is required for generating optimal pulses only while the abdominal pressure is positive through the inspiration cycles.
Increase of the esophagus motility (shift back materials to the stomach direction).
Long term effective:
Long-term effect that include LES modulation. The concept: electrical pulses generate abdominal muscles contractions that on the long run increase LES resting pressure and decrease transient LES relaxations, reducing esophageal acid exposure.
Update: the study was successfully completed. The next study will begin within a few months.
All the Advantages in our Device
No adverse effect
Non Invasive solution for treating GERD
Self-used by the patient
An inexpensive procedure
No need medication
May immediately release the symptoms
Long term effective (also after end of use): May strengthen the esophageal sphincter muscle
Can increase the esophagus motility
3 Reasons Why you should Volunteer
The efficacy of therapeutic non-invasive device for treating esophageal reflux is now in study
Subjects with heartburn and/or regurgitation symptoms or treated by reflux medications are invited to take part in this study
The study is performed in four clinical centers: Ichilov – Tel Aviv; Beilinson – Petach Tikva; Rambam and Bnei Zion – Haifa
The study procedure is involved with gastroscopy, esophageal acid monitoring, treatment with GerdCare Medical device and visits at home (or workplace)
The treatment is provided with no cost and optional expense reimbursement
And above all, it may improve your quality of life
Precise diagnosing of your disease via PH monitoring capsule
Taking part in scientific clinical study and contribution to society
Assisting in development of clinical device that increases quality of life and replaces medication with adverse effects
