Medtronic, Inc. (NYSE:MDT) and Envisionier Medical Technologies, Inc., a privately held company, today announced an agreement that grants exclusive rights for US distribution and marketing of the endogo® system to the ENT (ear, nose, and throat) division of Medtronic.

Rockville, MD (PRWEB) February 16, 2009 -- Envisionier is the developer of the endogo® system, a battery-operated, palm-held endoscopic imaging system for the capture, storage and sharing of endoscopic imaging data with an integrated LCD monitor.

The innovative system provides a more efficient and versatile alternative to traditional, cart-based endoscopic imaging devices.

David Guy, President of Envisionier, stated, "This distribution agreement signals our first step towards global commercialization of palm-held endoscopic imaging technologies and is a major milestone in the execution of our business strategy. Medtronic's array of diagnostic and therapeutic devices for ENT and speech language pathology is a perfect match with the endogo® system. With this agreement, we will solidify our global first mover advantage in these emerging segments of the endoscopic market. Medtronic's substantial distribution network will allow Envisionier to realize our vision of transforming and expanding the worldwide endoscopic market. This strategic partnership with Medtronic for the ENT and speech language pathology market segment will also allow us to focus our efforts on the Gynecologic, Urologic, and other emerging markets."
