The invention (US Patent 10,953,240) is a small, energized, ocular insert designed to deliver home-based Photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy to treat retinal diseases including age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy which affect approximately 20 million people in the USA alone, says a press release.

"This patent represents an important contribution to the future of 'on-eye' miniaturized therapeutic wearables, and it also spawned two other inventions including our on-market, award-winning, CicaLux® product line," said Michel Alvarez – CEO and inventor. He added, "I would like to congratulate co-inventor – Professor Denis Flandre – ICTEAM institute at the Université catholique de Louvain (UC Louvain) - for his contribution and shared vision to bring smart, small, wearable, home-therapy devices to people around the world."

"This was a great basis for our deeper collaboration and further innovation in smart medical wearables involving ultra-low-power thin-film electronic circuits and sensors," said Professor Flandre.

Alvalux's first patent award announced last month (US Patent 10,953,238) is a wearable dermal repair system marketed under the CicaLux brand that delivers energized combination PBM therapy to treat various skin-related conditions, diseases and disorders. First product CicaLux Energized Scar-Care is available for sale in the European Union, USA and other countries.
