Let's explore the company's developments and other key details that may have bolstered Thursday's gains.

Why is it rising?

Motus GI Holdings is a medical technology company that provides enhanced endoscopy outcomes at a lower cost while offering a better patient experience. The healthcare technology firm manages its operations through its subsidiaries in the US and Israel.

Among its most recent developments, the Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based healthcare company announced on September 29 that it had received official recognition as a sole source provider and small business by Veterans Health Administration (VHA).

VHA is a leading integrated healthcare body that provides care to more than nine million veterans in the US. The healthcare system claims to provide care to nearly 1300 healthcare facilities.

Through the recognition, Motus GI Holdings would have direct access to the procurement segment of VHA, which would help it in its purchasing and contracting process. The healthcare technology company said it believes that the special designation would increase its chances of accessing VA medical centers throughout the country.

In addition, it would also boost its ability to utilize the Pure-Vu EVS System for helping veterans who are bearing inadequate pre-procedural bowel preparation.
