Easier control and less fatigue during long procedures

The new ergonomic control body of the i20c series features optimized steering wheels for better access and endoscope handling.

The control body size was optimized as well, aiming for a stressless usage for all hand dimensions.

Air/water and suction valves were improved for smooth operation.

The positioning of the remote buttons were rearranged and optimized for easier access and operation.

Based on an evaluation of hand dimensions

In a user-focused evaluation1), the average hand and finger dimensions were measured to optimize the control body's fit:

Finger-optimized spokes require less force to move the distal end.

Lower, flatter steering wheels for tip angulation were shaped to improve access and operability.

It all comes down to a control body that supports physicians during long procedures with less straining manipulations.


1) Evaluation was conducted 2019 with 42 probands, reflecting potential gender and geographical considerations.

Lightweight global connector for fast, safe one-handed operation

The characteristic plug-shape ensures a fail-safe connection. 

The connector is sealed for an efficient reprocessing with no need for soaking caps.

Its release button enables single-handed operation and unplugging.

We reduced weight and size of the connector to allow for easier overall handling.

210° (up) tip angulation for outstanding positioning 

210° (up) tip angulation in our gastroscopes and colonoscopes to enable detection and resection of even hard to reach lesions.

Excellent maneuverability due to 210° deflection and minimized bending radius.

Advanced therapy: Combining flexibility 
of the endoscope tip and stability of the 
endoscope body.

Advanced orientation and detection due to deflection, up to 4K resolution and excellent LED illumination in combination with i-scan.

Adjustable stiffness to adapt to any given situation or anatomy

The i20c generation of colonoscopes offers a further improved insertion tube: It lets you adjust the endoscope rigidity, flexibility and torque to support you ideally in each kind of anatomy and situation.

Graded endoscope flexibility to ease the maneuverability and help to reduce loopings

Delivers a higher tactile feel with the endoscopes, supporting a predictable movement

Adjustable stiffness
Rigidity of the insertion tube can be adjusted for individual patient's anatomy
