OMER, Israel, June 6, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medigus Ltd. (NASDAQ: MDGS) (TASE: MDGS), a pioneer developer of minimally invasive endo-surgical tools and an innovator in direct visualization technology, today announces an order backlog of $1.1 Million as of May 31, 2019 for its micro-camera business.
"Our impressive backlog is a testimony to the growth the company experiences. Medigus' and ScoutCam's activities have been enjoying growth for a while now and it reflects in the orders we receive. The company's products are becoming more attractive and relevant for a wider range of customers and industries, beyond the medical field. Our camera's advanced capabilities resulted in acknowledgment from NASA this year, when our cameras were used in one of their space missions", said Benad Goldwasser, Chairman of Medigus and ScoutCam.
The Company has developed a portfolio of micro video cameras including the micro ScoutCam™ 1.2, considered the world's smallest video camera, and ScoutCam™ 8.0 HD, the smallest HD camera and illumination solution in the world. ScoutCam’s technology features optic and illumination solutions, micro sensors and high-end DSP video processors that can be tailored for both medical and industrial applications. ScoutCam 8.0 HD was selected by NASA to be incorporated into its Visual Inspection Poseable Invertebrate Robot 2 (VIPIR2). VIPIR2, a robotic, multi-capability inspection tool being used as part of NASA’s Robotic Refueling Mission 3 (RRM3), was launched into space on December 5, 2018.
Medigus is the pioneer developer of the MUSE™ system, an FDA cleared and CE marked endoscopic device to perform Transoral Fundoplication (TF) for the treatment of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), one of the most common chronic conditions in the world. In 2016, the CMS established the Category I CPT® Code of 43210 for TF procedures, such as the ones performed with MUSE, which establishes reimbursement values for physicians and hospitals.
As an expert in micro-endoscopic devices, Medigus developed the Micro ScoutCam™ portfolio, which consists of a variety of micro CMOS and CCD video cameras, and includes Micro ScoutCam™ 1.2, which, to the best of Medigus’s knowledge, is the smallest camera in the world. Micro ScoutCam technology features optic and illumination solutions, micro sensors and high-end DSP video processors that can be tailored for both medical and industrial applications. Customization and seamless integration are at the forefront of the micro ScoutCam™ portfolio’s design.
