Ergonomic Otoscope (patent pending)
Team: Rulifson, Faludi, Cimbalo

Final Prototypes

The final design incorporates a LED and beam splitter combination for illumination, an integral cast silicone insufflator, increased magnification, and a larger viewing area with greater off-axis viewing capability.

The external shape allows for a variety of hand sizes in a more comfortable position than current otoscopes. The hand positioning also lends to increased control of the patient contact point, thus increasing control and safety when viewing or insufflating. The device uses current standard specula and readily available batteries.
