Olympus Receives Breakthrough Innovation Technology Award

Olympus has announced that its Endoeye Flex 3D articulating videoscope was one of 16 medical innovations on display in front of thousands of healthcare providers and experts at the Premier Inc. 2014 Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition.

Olympus’ 3D Imaging System was showcased during the conference’s sixth annual Innovation Celebration, which recognizes advances in healthcare while highlighting industry suppliers committed to innovation and improving patient outcomes.

Olympus’ Endoeye Flex 3D is the world’s only articulating HD 3D videoscope. The system’s 3D visualization provides depth perception and a precise spatial view of anatomy that cannot be achieved with traditional 2D systems, producing bright, natural 2D and 3D images in a lightweight and ergonomic design. It also delivers up to 100 degrees of articulation in all directions, enabling observation and therapy in the entire peritoneal cavity – and with a level visual horizon.

When compared with traditional 2D surgical systems, the Endoeye Flex 3D delivers value to surgeons and patients by reducing surgical errors and improving the speed, accuracy and precision of surgical tasks. Olympus’ 3D system also provides surgeons with real time tactile feedback, which is lost when using robotic alternatives.

Award winners were announced during the Innovation Celebration held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.
