Endoscopy, The SMART Way

NaviAid™ - Beyond Conventional Limitations

The NaviAid™ AB (Advancing Balloon) device provides easy and fast ileoscopy / upper enteroscopy while using standard endoscopes. It is an on-demand device, which can be spontaneously introduced through the working channel of the endoscope during the procedure (colonoscopy or EGD) upon physician's decision without the need for pre-mounting or interrupting the normal course of examination. Once inflated ahead of the endoscope and anchored in the bowel, the device is used as a rail on which the endoscope is advanced, replacing pushing by guidance. Multiple advancement steps may be performed as needed, facilitating deep, fast and safe intubation in the small bowel (https://www.giejournal.org/article/S0016-5107(15)02397-4/fulltext). The device may be removed from the endoscope's working channel during procedure to allow biopsy and therapy, and be then re-inserted to facilitate further advancement.
