Section : Who we are

WHO WE ARE



NeoMedLight develops innovative medical devices designed for phototherapy. The company is the owner of a unique and proprietary technology: the emission of light through woven optic fibers, the Fabric of Light (Lightex®). This technology was originally developed by Brochier Technologies (www.brochiertechnologies.com) with which NeoMedLight shares the overall ownership. NeoMedLight has the exclusivity in healthcare.

The company has initially conceived and developed a fiber-optic phototherapy device to treat neonatal jaundice; Further therapeutic indications that would benefit from the Fabric of Light may include mucositis, dermatitis, wound healing/tissue regeneration, as well as pain management.

OUR ADVISORS

Dr. Anne Cortey
Dr. Anne Cortey is a Pediatrician with a long experience in neonatology (including intensive care and clinical follow-up). She is the clinical head at the CNRHP (Centre National de Référence en Hémobiologie Périnatale): a French reference center coordinating the prevention and management of Neonatal jaundice and of feoto-maternal red blood cell incompatibilities. Her interests include the management of jaundice, from diagnosis to follow-up after the discharge from maternity. She is very engaged in making sure the disease is taken seriously by the clinical community and the care facilities inside and outside the hospitals. As such she is spearheading the effort of education of parents and care givers in France about jaundice and phototherapy. She represents the country in the international committee dedicated to hyperbilirubinemia.


" All the phototherapy devices are effective but most of them are ill adapted to very sick or small babies and all of them interfere with neonatal care and parents-child bonding and breast-feeding. Devices tend to be bulky, heat emitting, with a poorly controlled light intensity. Thanks to NeoMedLight’s new technology, we can have both an effective therapy and a quality relationship between mother and child. For instance, breast-feeding does not need interruption which is key to increased therapy efficacy, and support the maternal-neonates interaction. "

Pr René-Jean Bensadoun
Pr. Bensadoun is a leader and respected authority in Head and Neck Oncology and Radiotherapy. He was the head of the Radiation Oncology Department at the University Hospital of Poitiers, and is now Chairman at the CHE (High Energy Private Cancer Center) in Nice. Pr. Bensadoun has demonstrated through his clinical research that red and near infrared Low Level Light Therapy can limit the development of Oral Mucositis and Dermatitis induced by chemo-radiotherapy. He currently uses such light to help his patients.
Pr. Bensadoun is convinced that NeoMedLight technology presents a real added value for the management of mucositis and dermatitis induced by chemo-radiotherapy or targeted agents in Oncology. Patients' outcome and wellbeing should be improved during this very heavy therapy. NeoMedLight technology could offer both the patients and their caregivers a simple and efficacious way to control a complication with potentially very severe impact on patients’ outcome. It is not only about comfort, it is also about clinical outcome. "
