Celiac.com 01/07/2018 - imaware™ is a pioneering at-home health testing platform that provides accurate and actionable at-home disease screening. The imaware™ mission is to empower patients with the ability to accurately screen for diseases from the comfort of their own home by removing the existing barriers to testing. imaware™ believes this will increase the likelihood of early detection and diagnosis dramatically, and earlier medical diagnosis will enable health and lifestyle adjustments that can significantly improve quality of life.
The first test available on the imaware™ platform is for celiac disease. Celiac Disease is one of the most under-diagnosed diseases in the United States, with over 3 million Americans currently affected by celiac disease, and over 60% of those affected remaining undiagnosed. It currently takes the average patient over 5 years from recognizing initial symptoms to be diagnosed, which makes it difficult and costly to make the necessary lifestyle changes to reduce potential damage. imaware™ has worked with leading medical experts such as Dr. Gaundalini, Medical Director of the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center and Dr. Schuppan, who discovered the tTG biomarker for use in the identification of Celiac Disease to develop their leading at-home celiac disease test, which is currently available for $99 online.
Home-based testing for a healthier future
Many people could be making healthier decisions in their lives if they knew more about their health. There are many diseases that are significantly under-diagnosed, especially if the symptoms are not as "direct" and observable. It is in these spaces that imaware™ wants to impact positive change. Currently the imaware™ at-home test for celiac disease is available ffor purchase, and a new test to support celiac disease monitoring for those already diagnosed will launch in January 2019.
Additional tests for rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease and prostate cancer are planned for release the coming months.
