Trial Information

a Prospective Clinical Study to Establish the Usability of the PeerScope B System™ When Used During Standard Colonoscopy Procedure

Founded in 2009, PeerMedical develops colonoscopes capable of wide view angle at the press
of the button. The PeerScope B System™ is an endoscopic platform that enables the physician
to get a wide angle view while maintaining all of the features commonly used during
Gastrointestinal (GI) procedures with very limited learning curve and in service process.
The current standard devices have viewing limitations. By adding this viewing functionality,
PeerMedical will potentially empower physicians to improve polyps detection and cancers
within the colon.
