New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) March 10, 2010
Olive Medical Corp., a boutique medical product development company, today unveiled a prototype of the industry's first single-use HD endoscopic camera system at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) Conference in New Orleans. The new innovative camera is completely disposable--eliminating any chance of contamination while increasing efficiency and lowering overall cost.
The new product, which will be applying for FDA approval later this year, significantly lowers the cost-per-case when compared to traditional endoscopic camera systems, and also lowers the costs for capital equipment. The camera's video output is equivalent to leading HD surgical cameras. In addition, the device is packaged and shipped completely sterile, eliminating the chance of patient cross-contamination.
"I'm continually amazed at the excellent engineering team we've assembled at Olive," said Josh Talbert, CEO of Olive Medical. "This single-use endoscopic camera system is unparalleled in its efficient design and exceptional performance. This is just the first of many innovative medical devices we'll be unveiling in the near future."
The camera's control unit has full 1080p video output, 2 DVI and HDMI outputs, a unique touch-screen LCD interface, and integrated storage of 40 images that reduces the need for a separate capture devices. The camera head has full 1080p video acquisition, three fully programmable buttons, an ergonomic design, and is compatible with any C-mount coupler.
Olive Medical is currently seeking qualified partners to manufacture and distribute the product once FDA approval is acquired. The company is demonstrating the new single-use high definition endoscopic camera system during the AAOS Conference at the Hilton Garden Inn Woodward B conference room.
