COMPANY DESCRIPTION IN 100 WORDS OR LESS

Millions of patients in developing countries are deprived of common procedures relating to respiratory, gynecological, gastrointestinal, etc. issues due to the high cost of equipment and training related to endoscopy treatments.

Using bottom-up innovation techniques, Evolving Technologies created an endoscopy system for the needs of developing markets for less than 4% of the market price. Their main product today is a light, portable endoscopy system for women’s health, the EvoCam. They also have the EvoLight, a light, portable, LED-based medical light-source powered by a USB.
