Riester Introduces Its New E.N.T. Endoscopes

Riester has introduced its new range of rigid and flexible E.N.T. endoscopes and accompanying accessories that meets the demand of ENT specialists. The range includes sinuscopes, otoscopes, naso-pharyngoscopes, light sources and a camera and image processing system.

Sinuscopes are available in 2.7mm and 4.0mm diameter and feature high performance fibre optics to enable high resolution images that are HD ready. Options include 0° or 30° viewing direction with a standard or wide viewing angle. Xenon or LED illumination ensures excellent image clarity for improved examination


The otoscope for ear diagnosis also features high performance optics and xenon or LED illumination, and its small dimensions ensure ease of use and patient comfort. The otoscope is available with a 2.7mm diameter, 0° viewing direction and a wide angle view.

Alternative handles are available with lithium-ion and lithium batteries, making the endoscopes portable. Combining a long lasting lithium-ion battery with energy efficient LED technology creates a sustained high-power performance and significant cost savings.

The flexible naso-pharyngoscope has been developed with high precision mechanical components in a sturdy casing. Fibre optic bundles facilitate high quality images at 10 mega pixels. Its working length is 300mm with a bendable distal end of 25mm and a viewing angle of 90°.

Laryngo-pharyngoscopes are also available from Riester. The standard laryngo-pharyngoscope has significant depth of focus and panoramic view whereas the tele-laryngo-pharyngoscope offers 2 different magnifications, a panoramic and detailed view, and an additional integrated air channel to avoid condensation.

Camera System
The ri-cam is a compact, user friendly 1CCD camera with integrated electronics that produces excellent image quality. The ergonomic head and TV adapter have been designed to be used with sterile sheaths and gloves.

Image data is transferred to the ri-capture smartbox that can be connected to a pc to process the image. Used in conjunction with the ri-view software, images can be seen live and stored as single images.

The ri-cam, ri-capture and ri-view together create an all-in one digital image processing system and ENT specialists have the choice of either viewing images via a video monitor or laptop.
