About the Team


Developing a degradable intestinal tube to facilitate glycemic control in diabetic patients. Intestinal cannula is placed in the duodenum to obstruct food absorption and reduce intestinal secretion for weight and blood sugar control.




Completed prototype production and material homogeneity analysis , build animal model and completed safety validation. Submitted PCT. application to elevate technology protection. Currently undergoing animal studies.
