Description - Karl Storz Endoscopy (Uk) Ltd Medical Equipment & Supplies Dundee
In 1945, Karl Storz founded a company for manufacturing ENT instruments, headlamps, and binocular loupes. This interest in medical vision, illumination, and hence physics consequently led him to specialize in endoscopes. He was fascinated by the idea of building endoscopes that allow physicians to look inside the body.
At the time, the technical resources available for this purpose were still extremely limited. The examination site was illuminated using tiny, faint light bulbs, or mirrors were used to reflect external light through the endoscope tube into the body.
Karl Storz quickly recognized that these methods could not achieve satisfactory illumination. He wanted to find a better way.
