Ovesco Endoscopy GmbH develops, produces and sells medical instruments for investigation of the gastrointestinal tract.
Ovesco's majority partner is the firm novineon Healthcare Technology Partners GmbH, which also provides the management team.
Ovesco collaborates with various medical and technical institutions such as the Institute of Anatomy at the University of Tübingen. The company produces clip systems and OTSC® (Over-The-Scope-Clip) application systems for the treatment of bleeding and lesions in the digestive tract. These feature an applicator cap mounted to the tip of the endoscope and a super-elastic nitinol clip. The working channel also serves as a conduit for a tool used for positioning the clip correctly.
During flexible endoscopy, use of the instrument allows more tissue to be compressed than previously, thereby facilitating the treatment of perforations and severe bleeding.
