Making Complicated, Delicate Procedures More Comfortable

The use of endoscopes for evolving diagnostics and treatment methods entails complicated and delicate operations. The design of the operational portion was thoroughly updated to realize a more convenient operability that enables physicians to completely focus on the procedure. We were committed to usability, including readily accessible buttons, a dial for easily implementing minute adjustments, a grip that fits comfortably, and stable weight balance. To eliminate the influence of differences in hand size, grasp, and procedures, we gathered feedback from a broad selection of physicians and incorporated our findings into the design. We also considered the needs of technicians and nurses while concentrating the display of identifying information close to the grip. This allows for faster, more efficient preparation.
