Vaginal Tactile Imager receives U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance.
The Vaginal Tactile Imager (VTI) obtains a high resolution mapping of pressures and assesses the strength of pelvic floor muscles within the vagina. It is used in a medical clinical setting to sense the pressure along the vagina and store the corresponding data. The VTI also provides analysis information. The real time data as well the analysis information can then be viewed by a physician as a tool for diagnosis and analysis. The Vaginal Tactile Imaging technology was developed with the support of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Advanced Tactile Imaging Inc. http://www.tactile-imaging.com/ will pursue manufacturing and introduction of the technology in commercial markets.
