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 the 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. 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.
