Our new PENTAX Medical INSPIRA™ platform and i20c series of endoscopes raise the bar in quality with 4K imaging, a customizable processor loaded with intuitive features controlled by a state-of-the-art touch panel.” Harrison continued, “Our engineers worked closely with endoscopists worldwide to redesign our scopes with lightweight connectors, easy-to-reach remote buttons, and angulation knobs offering superior ergonomics.”
PENTAX Medical plans to launch its new system soon in Canada and Latin America, and the rest of the world in the coming months.
