IKOMED Technologies Inc. is a young and energetic medical device company, based in Vancouver BC, which is engaged in the research and development of several ground-breaking medical device technologies.
Our first product, Aegis, received FDA clearance in March 2019 and we are commercializing it is with our partner Omega Medical Imaging. Aegis is a smart shutter system used to reduce the amount of X ray radiation which patients and medical staff are exposed to during medical procedures requiring the use of fluoroscopy. The Aegis system combines a high-speed electro-mechanical shutter with machine vision, image processing, and machine learning to reduce radiation by over 70% with no degradation in image quality.
We are also developing a novel medical device that will revolutionize the treatment of emphysema, a type of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Emphysema is a debilitating and progressive lung disease caused by smoking, environmental factors, or genetic factors. It is one of the leading causes of death, with millions of patients worldwide, but there is currently no cure and treatment is focused on alleviating symptoms. Our device applies RF (radio frequency) radiation in a non-invasive treatment which could cure the disease and improve the quality of life of millions of patients around the world, increase their productivity, and reduce long-term healthcare costs.
