Endotics system and the inchworm | Sistema endotics y el gusano medidor

The Endotics® System was first conceived by observing Geometer moths, as robotics often draws inspiration from animal; plant kinematics and dynamics. Matching patients’ expectations (avoiding pain, infection & perforation risks) and physicians’ requirements (preventing work-related injuries), the Endotics® probe propels itself in the colon by mimicking the movements of the inchworm. This particular locomotion allows the probe to adapt itself to the dynamic curves and bends of the colon; this self-conformation feature minimises the unnatural deformation of the colon inherent in conventional colonoscopy.
