Women’s Health Innovators: Oratel Diagnostics
Worldwide, more than ten percent of women suffer from pelvic pain caused by endometriosis. This disorder, which occurs when endometrial tissues grows outside of the uterus, is currently diagnosed using an invasive surgical laparoscopy that many patients are unable to afford.
Currently, ten million patients enter the emergency room every year complaining of pelvic pain, but 65% leave without a diagnosis. Unlike the invasive and costly laparoscopy, Oratel Diagnostic’s alternative is quick, affordable, and easy to use, allowing more patients to understand their condition and be matched with an effective treatment.
Oratel Diagnostics aims to solve this diagnostic gap by creating a cost effective and non-invasive saliva-based test that can detect endometriosis.
Although there are a few competitors in this field, Oratel Diagnostics differentiates themselves from the other diagnostic tools. Oratel Diagnostics currently holds three patents for their technology, and while other tests may take days to produce results, the ENDO-TEK test can be completed in minutes.
Innovative technology continues to push the frontier of both reality and imagination. With companies, such as Meta (fomerly Facebook), Amazon, and other recognizable brands, pouring billions into development of augmented reality (AR) for consumerism, the healthcare sector continues to evolve in parallel.
