SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--San Diego-based Clarify Medical, the developer and marketer of the Clarify Medical™ Home Light Therapy System, announced today that its FDA-cleared home-based treatment technology for psoriasis and vitiligo is now rolling out for national distribution.
The lightweight Clarify system allows convenient home phototherapy linking patient, physician and Clarify CarePartner through Android and IOS smartphones and the Clarify Physician Portal. A lightweight handheld device synced to the Clarify App on the patient’s phone guides patients through delivering brief doses of targeted narrowband Ultra Violet B (UVB) phototherapy precisely where it is needed, controlled by a physician’s prescription.
Narrowband UVB therapy, currently provided mainly in physicians’ offices or in phototherapy clinics, is well established for the treatment of chronic skin conditions.
With the Clarify Medical Home Light Therapy System, physicians can review each patient’s progress during office visits, including photographs of changes in skin condition, via the HIPAA-compliant Clarify Physician Portal.
“We’re excited to be able to provide a game-changing treatment technology to psoriasis and vitiligo patients, in the comfort of their homes, on a national level,” said James M. Sweeney, Clarify Medical’s CEO. “We already know that UVB treatment works -- and now, instead of multiple weekly trips to a doctor’s office or clinic to receive therapy, patients can deliver treatments themselves where and when they want to. For busy dermatologists with office space and time constraints that often preclude them from offering UVB therapy, Clarify provides a way to offer home treatment while continuing to monitor patient care.”
Additionally, Clarify CarePartners, highly trained clinical educators, are standing by to coach patients on the use of the system, monitor ongoing treatment and encourage treatment adherence.
Clarify’s system integrates the latest in NB-UVB therapy with the convenience of smartphone usage to accommodate physician requirements and patient quality of life.
Clarify Medical is a private San Diego-based medical device company focused on developing innovative technology, products and services that improve care for people with chronic skin conditions.
