Alasdair Barnett, Bruce Hutchison, the maker of the displayed work A colonoscopy device:EndoCuff by Alasdair Barnett, Bruce Hutchison explains, EndoCuff is an innovative disposable device that slips onto the end of conventional colonoscopes to improve mucosal vision and enhance tip control during a colonoscopy. EndoCuff features soft flexible projections which gently support the tip of the colonoscope in the colonic lumen during extubation so providing greater stability and reducing sudden slip back and juddering. The projections evert large folds and flatten small folds so that significantly more mucosa can be visualised. With sixty million procedures worldwide this will revolutionise detection rates within cancer screening..
