REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iMedical Innovation Inc., dba Biotricity, a healthcare technology company dedicated to delivering innovative, medically relevant biometric monitoring solutions, has completed a “reverse merger” transaction with Metasolutions Inc. (OTCQB:BTCY), a U.S.-based publicly-traded provider of, until the closing, energy intelligence management solutions, at which time all of its assets and liabilities were assigned to and assumed by a third party.
MetaSolutions has changed its name to Biotricity, Inc. and the company’s stock began trading on the OTC Venture Marketplace (OTC QB) under the new ticker, “BTCY.” Waqaas Al-Siddiq, the founder, president and CEO of iMedical Innovations, was appointed president, chairman and CEO of Biotricity, Inc.
“The completion of this merger represents the beginning of the next stage in the growth and development of Biotricity,” said Al-Siddiq “As a public entity, we gain greater access to the capital markets, as well as enhanced transparency for both our shareholders and industry partners.”
Biotricity is a modern medical technology company focused on delivering innovative, remote biometric monitoring solutions to the medical and consumer markets, including diagnostic and post-diagnostic solutions for chronic conditions and lifestyle improvement.
The company’s flagship product bioflux™, currently in development, is a mobile cardiac telemetry (MCT) solution that is expected to enable physicians to remotely monitor and diagnose cardiovascular disease (CVD) and coronary heart disease by detecting arrhythmias.
The device transmits electrocardiograph (ECG) data in real-time, allowing cardiac-triggered events to be monitored remotely as they occur. The product’s software component is FDA-cleared, and its diagnostic reads are reimbursable by insurance in the U.S. under existing American Medical Association and Current Procedural Terminal (CPT) codes.
CVD is the number one cause of death worldwide, and the early detection, diagnosis and management of chronic cardiac conditions is critical to reducing the burden on healthcare providers as the world’s population ages. This need is driving the growth in the cardiac monitoring market, which is expected to reach $26 billion by 2020. In addition to the aging population, major factors contributing to this growth include an increase in chronic diseases related to lifestyle choices and improved technology in diagnostic devices.
“While traditional electrocardiograms help diagnose certain types of cardiovascular conditions, MCT is the preferred remote heart monitoring method among physicians because of its ability to continuously monitor patients in real-time,” noted Al-Siddiq. “This reduces patient risk and physician liability.”
The company plans to submit its application for FDA clearance of bioflux in the first quarter of 2016, and officially launch the device in the second quarter.
“Our vision is to revolutionize the MCT market by providing a more convenient, cost-effective and integrated solution for both providers and patients,” said Al-Siddiq. “Our platform is also designed to encompass other segments of the remote patient monitoring market, including pre-natal monitoring, preventative care, and lifestyle and wellness.”
