Pentax Medical is starting 2023 with two new approvals in Europe. The company, which is a division of the Hoya Group, has obtained CE marks for the Pentax Medical Inspira, a premium video processor, and the i20c video endoscope series.

Rainer Burkard, Global President at Pentax Medical, comments: "Pentax Medical Inspira video processor not only upgrades legacy instruments' imaging capabilities, in combination with our new i20c endoscope generation, it is a milestone for endoscopy. In line with our commitment to continually innovate products, this cutting-edge solution provides a future-proof platform and we are proud of the ground-breaking image quality it brings."

Compatible with two connection types, the Pentax Medical Inspira video allows for upgrading the legacy endoscopy portfolio to the latest imaging standards. As a result, the image quality of current endoscope generations meets high-class clinical needs, for an extended duration of time. This smart feature thus extends the lifecycle of each endoscope for greater sustainability, while continuing to meet the highest standards of modern imaging and visualization.

The i20c generation of endoscopes is designed with superior ergonomics for healthcare professionals and exceptional imaging for the highest quality of procedures. Physicians instantly benefit from outstanding manoeuvrability, angulation, and handling, combined with further improved vision. The control body and light-weight connector of the i20c video endoscopes are designed to further optimize the endoscopic workflow.

Pentax Medical strives to align with the healthcare community's Triple Aim goals through transparent partnerships with its customers and by providing the highest quality solutions to help them reach their goals, including enabling customers to improve patient outcomes by offering evidence-based solutions across the continuum of care; ensuring value by supporting the customers to improve their efficiency and minimize their healthcare costs; and enriching patient and provider's experience by empowering every member of the care team to achieve optimal outcomes through products, education, and support.
