“… Vivo Surgical, a medical device manufacturer in Singapore that has built a niche marketing instruments that expand access in low-resource settings.”


Vivo Surgical is proud of our innovative partnership with the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), Duke Global Health Institute, Singapore General Hospital and National ENT Hospital Vietnam to develop a next-generation portable endoscope system for nasopharyngeal (nose) cancer screening and diagnosis.


The clinical impact that such an endoscope imaging system has is multi-fold, not only allowing access to high quality cancer screening for rural populations in emerging economies, but also unlocking the possibility of ward based pre-/post-operative cancer imaging in developed health systems.


Read the full article to find out more about how the idea behind the development of a next-generation portable endoscope system came about and how Vivo Surgical is helping emerging economies take a ‘quantum leap forward’.
