The Aer-O-Scope Colonoscope is designed to fundamentally change the way colorectal cancer screening will be performed. It is designed to help GI practices and hospital outpatient departments meet escalating demand for colorectal screening with a reliable, easy-to-use and cost-effective disposable colonoscope. Pre-clinical and clinical trials in Israel were conducted to substantiate the Aer-O-Scope system’s 360° visualization capabilities as well as safety and intubation rate targets.
The Aer-O-Scope Colonoscope System consists of two primary components:
The soft multi-lumen tube and unique propulsion system is designed to maximize safety and ease-of-use. The pneumatic self-propulsion mechanism uses balloons and low pressure CO2 gas for self-propelled intubation.
The novel optical system maximizes visualization of the entire colonic mucosa, including behind haustral folds. The optical head lens construction boasts unique optics that enable 360° panoramic, omni-directional visualization, as well as a front view similar to conventional colonoscopy - visible to the practitioner on a single screen.
The Aer-O-Scope work station provides all of the necessary elements to operate the disposable scanner. These include CO2, water, suction and air pressure, as well as the power supply for the camera and illumination. The Aer-O-Scope work station also receives and processes transmitted data from the camera and scanner, including pneumatic controls and pressure measurements used by the control software to manage advancement within the colon. The work station is equipped with a physician device interface. The ergonomic joystick is at the core of the work station, enabling intuitive control of navigation, insufflation, irrigation, and suction.
