March 29, 2019

Olympus Corporation announced today that “PowerSpiral” will be launched in Europe and parts of the Asia-Pacific region, including Hong Kong and India, on March 29. The system uses a motorized rotating attachment (“overtube”, DPST-1) that mounts on the scope and gently grips onto the mucosa to help the endoscope advance deep into the small intestine. Going forward, “PowerSpiral” will additionally launch in the United States and other parts of the Asia-Pacific region as regulatory procedures are completed.
