The MOSkinTM Technology is a suite of complementary medical devices that enable clinicians to accurately monitor, in real-time, the precise dose of radiation patients are exposed to during radiation procedures.
The Company is developing the MOSkinTM system for clinical use.
The MOSkinTM system comprises the following elements:
- single use radiation dosimeter sensors (MOSkinTM Sensor) that are placed directly on the skin of a patient and detect the radiation dose delivered to the patient;
- a reusable data hub (MOSkinTM Hub) that transmits the data to the application on the tablet;
- the MOSkinTM tablet Application that receives the data from the MOSkinTM Hub and enables the clinician to setup the sensor locations and read the data in real-time or immediately after the treatment;
The MOSkinTM Sensor is a clean, non-sterile, single use device that measures the cumulative radiation skin dose over the duration of the exposure.
The MOSkinTM Sensor
- enables real time in-vivo dosimetry;
- is accurate, is temperature independent, is transparent to radiation, and can be placed in the direct beam, without impacting on the image that is taken or the dose of radiation that is given to the patient.
- has a highly reproducible build-up layer capable of measuring skin dose and all other required tissue depths
- is calibrated pre-treatment for either passive or active use
- once it has been read, is disposed of into clinical waste.
The MOSkinTM Hub is a rechargeable wireless enabled device which reads the information from the Sensor into which the MOSkinTM Sensor to enable real-time measurements to be relayed to the MOSkinTM IPad Application.
The MOSkinTM Hub is self-powered has ports to enable upt to 4 MOSkinTM Sensors to be connected at any one time in each procedure.
The MOSkinTM Reader is a battery powered touch screen device that receives the data from the MOSkinTM Sensors during medical procedures. It is also used to assign the MOSkinTM Sensors unique identifiers to the patient. The touchscreen enables the user to navigate through the various setup, patient management and data capture sequences. The MOSkinTM Reader can have multiple MOSkinTM Sensors connected at any one time.
Modes of Operation of MOSkinTM Sensors
MOSkinTM Sensors will be used in two modes:
In this mode, the MOSkinTM Sensor is not connected to the MOSkinTM Reader.
Readings can be taken immediately, or any time, after the treatment. This mode is used primarily for radiotherapy as the sensitivity does not need to be high.
In this mode, the MOSkinTM Sensor is connected to the MOSkinTM Reader during treatment. Readings can be viewed in real-time.
This mode is used for radiotherapy for cancer as well as interventional or diagnostic radiology.
EXAMPLE OF PASSIVE MODE OF OPERATION
Passive mode requires a clinician to read radiation results in real-time to first remove the MOSkinTM Sensors from the patient’s skin and inserting them in the MOSkinTM Reader.
EXAMPLE OF ACTIVE MODE OF OPERATION
Active mode enables a clinician to read radiation results in real-time without needing to first remove the MOSkinTM Sensors from the patient’s skin.
