Evotech Endoscope

IDEA Gold Award 2013
Designed at IDEO.org, 2012
Currently in trial use by doctors in Uganda and India.

Evotech radically redesigned the standard endoscope found in American Hospitals (average cost: $70,000) and created a low-cost device with off-the-shelf parts designed for use in the developing world and with a cost of approximately $250.

Our project was to improve the design to be durable, sterilizable, waterproof, and capable of being manufactured at scale. We also identified new business opportunities for the endoscope and built a plan for expanding the devices reach.
