Medineering Robotic Endoscopy supports surgeons during minimally invasive ENT interventions by holding and moving the endoscope. The solution is specifically designed for the small and complex working spaces in ear, nose and throat.

The modular robotics solution consists of three components: The Positioning Arm, the application-specific Endoscope Robot and a foot pedal as control device.

The positioning arm is fixed directly to the OR-table and ready-to-use within only 60 seconds. Perfectly positioned touch buttons and distinct visual feedback provide for a professional user experience.

Tilo Wüsthoff works as an independent design professional based in Munich. After obtaining his university degree in industrial design in 2007 Tilo joined Germany´s national research center for aeronautics and space to connect user centered design, innovation and top notch international robotics research activities. Since then Tilo contributed to various robotics and spaceflight projects at the DLR as well as the European Space Agency (ESA) and also to numerous high-tech startups in the field of robotics.
