Uptake Medical: InterVapor System

Uptake Medical develops innovative medical technologies for the treatment of lung disease. Their InterVapor™ System is an Interventional Emphysema Therapy (IET) designed to analyse the patient’s unique emphysematous airway anatomy, and create and administer a treatment program that is personalised to each individual’s physiology and disease. InterVapor employs thermal energy (in the form of vaporised sterile water) to trigger the body’s own healing process and reduce the targeted emphysematous areas. InterVapor literally “creates more breathing room” for people with emphysema, and unlike other investigational bronchoscopic systems, leaves no foreign bodies or substances behind.

Aurora BioScience distributes the InterVapor System in the Australia-Pacific region.
