Clarify Medical Announces Issuance of Patent for Smartphone-Connected Phototherapy System


--Technology Powers Home-Based System Targeted at the Treatment of
Psoriasis and Vitiligo--

, developer of the Clarify Medical® Home Light
Therapy System, a software-controlled home phototherapy system for the
treatment of psoriasis, vitiligo, eczema, and other skin conditions,
today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has
issued US patent 9,9913,993, entitled "Systems And Methods For
Phototherapy." The patent covers technology which enables patients to
treat at home with controlled dosing protocols prescribed by physicians.
This news follows last month's patent issuance for Clarify Medical's
lighting engine technology.

Clarify Medical's lightweight, hand-held phototherapy system has
significant advantages compared to conventional phototherapy systems.
Treatment schedules are managed by the Clarify smartphone app and can be
monitored remotely, which helps to improve treatment adherence. Dosing
is optimized for each body location and is automatically controlled,
which simplifies the administration process for patients. Treatment
records and patient-reported outcome measures are collected and compiled
in a web-based application, allowing patients and physicians to monitor
progress throughout the course of therapy.

"One of the biggest problems with conventional home phototherapy is
non-adherence," said Rex Bright, Interim President and CEO of Clarify
Medical. "We believe that the features covered by this patent -
phototherapy treatment scheduling and reminders in the app, and ongoing
monitoring by the physician - will help solve that problem."

The Clarify System received FDA clearance in May 2017 with indications
for the treatment of vitiligo, psoriasis, eczema, seborrheic dermatitis
and leucoderma on all skin types (I-VI).

Clarify Medical is a medical technology company focused on developing
innovative products and services that improve the lives of people with
chronic skin conditions. Its Clarify Medical Home Light Therapy System
is now available nationally in the US. Learn more at
