INTIMA / gynecological speculum


INTIMA is an improved speculum that solves current problems during a gynecological exam. Specula are responsible for keeping separate the vaginal walls, so the doctor can take smears, evaluate the cervix and even detect cancer.
INTIMA is made of 2 STERILIZABLE and ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY materials that increase the patient comfort during the pelvic exam. The 2-opening-mechanism is intuitive adjustable and uses the natural tension of the vaginal walls to maintain the desired position. INTIMA is transparent, allows an optimal tissue visualization and it can also be connected to illumination systems, that are available in each consulting room.
