The endoscope is one of the few medical devices that has not undergone any serious ergonomic changes in over 40 years. Conventional endoscopes are heavy, complex to use and might cause orthopedic issues in your back, hands and shoulders. Recent studies confirm that more than 50% of endoscopists experience musculoskeletal injury. Potential mechanisms of injury include the repetition, potentially high forces, and sustained awkward postures associated with GI endoscopy.

The invendoscopy E200 System comes with a light-weight ScopeController that is fully detachable from the colonoscope. This ergonomically designed control body is easily handled, coming equipped with a joystick styled control plate and a set of low-profile and integral buttons for controlling the various functions of the invendoscope SC200. It has the potential to reduce the muscosceletal burden on the operator.
