Endoscope and Light Source that was donated from Medit Inc. for Doctors in Ethiopia

Medit Inc, one of the leaders among online suppliers of endoscopic equipment and accessories in North America, is pleased to announce great feedback that arrived from doctors in Ethiopia who have recently received a new endoscope and a light source as a donation from the company.

At the beginning of 2014 the company was contacted by Jerald S. Altman, M.D. from Valley ENT with the request to donate equipment for doctors in Ethiopia. Dr. Altman was going to Ethiopia in March of that year as a volunteer to train and help local doctors. Medit Inc. was able to donate a battery-powered endoscope and light source intended for use in the field.

The company was informed days before Christmas that the doctors in Ethiopia were extremely pleased with the endoscope’s easy and comfortable operation. Our light source utilizes a newly designed LED chip which is combined with a specialized focal lens to produce 15% more light intensity then the most powerful light sources in the class. The body is composed of high grade aluminum with an anodized finish. The light source has a great utilization which makes the inspection process more comfortable. The equipment is light, compact, portable and runs on standard AAA rechargeable batteries which makes it irreplaceable at locations where power supply is limited or not available.

The company hopes to continue collaboration with the doctors in Ethiopia and strongly believes that it is through small deeds of kindness that great things can happen.
