As far as we are concerned, this is the Cadillac of intravaginal scopes: sleek, small enough for making diagnoses in the office and comes with disposable
condoms sheaths to maintain cleanliness.
From the press release issued by the San Francisco company FemSuite LLC, that developed the device:
The FemEye One is the first in a line of single-use scopes that will make office procedures easier and more cost-effective for the Ob/Gyn.
The FemEye One is a hand-held, portable, proprietary video camera that can be used for visualization, documentation and patient education. While the camera itself is reusable, it comes with disposable sheaths that maintain sterility from use to use, eliminating the need for costly sterilization, handling and wrapping.
It’s no secret that cost is an important factor in any field, but this is especially true for Ob/Gyns. Jerry Sanders, CEO of FemSuite, pointed out, “FemSuite recognizes the need for innovative and user-friendly tools to help bring more procedures into the physician’s office in order to provide for lower hospital costs, better patient experience and increased physician revenue”.
The FemEye One costs the end user less than $300, which is an enormous savings compared to the several thousand dollar colposcopes and hysteroscopes that are being sold to hospitals today.
Next up for FemSuite is the FemEye Two: A disposable hysteroscope. FemSuite expects the second in its FemEye line of products to come to the FemEye cohort of physicians later this year.
