Product Details

VideoMed (TM) Overground Exercise Laryngoscope


The Overground Exercise Laryngoscope (OEL) has been developed in response to the requirement of veterinarians to carry out dynamic upper respiratory examinations. Existing methods of endoscopy practiced in conjunction with a treadmill do not simulate conditions experienced when the horse is galloping in the field.


This system is designed to give a stable image while the horse is galloping in real-world/field conditions. Once the endoscope is correctly positioned and secured, the distal end will retain its position throughout the examination.

  • Light source, insufflation pump and umbilicus with quick release mechanism
  • Rechargeable battery pack and charger
  • Laptop for recording video sequences
  • Water bottle

TESTIMONIALS:

"We have only had it a few months, but we are so pleased with the VideoMed scope. I've already had the opportunity to do a number of exams on sport horses, and all have produced excellent videos with useful results - so it's really gaining some attention now. We have learned a lot even in this short time - especially about just how differently each horse functions at exercise, regardless of what their resting exam looked like. It has allowed us to make better decisions about exactly how to treat each animal as an individual, based on their dynamic exam, to try and meet the needs of each horse and client. I'm looking forward to doing follow up endoscopies on some of my post-op patients, for my own interest, to try and learn more about what effects we are having with our interventions. It has also been fantastic tool for teaching our residents and students about airway conditions, and for educating our own clients.

The scope itself is so rigid and stays in place very well so that, as long as I have it placed where I want it when we get started, I don't need to readjust during the exam. This way we reliably get a great video, even when the horse is out of range from where we can see the live streaming image on the control unit, and regardless of how the animals head position changes during the exam. The learning curve with figuring out how to use it was steep but short; after practicing on 2-3 horses, I pretty much had gotten the hang of what I needed to do."
