Meet the future of endoscopy

The invendoscopy E210 System is a revolutionary single-use robotically-assisted endoscopy technology and consists of three key components:

History of endoscopy

The evolution of the endoscope is comparable to other devices. Like the telephone it was developed in the later 19th century. But what happened in the last 45 years? While the telephone changed from a hanging box to a mobile computer, the endoscope stayed mostly the same.
