ColoWrap is an abdominal compression device worn by patients undergoing colonoscopy. Made of the same latex-free material used in high-performance wetsuits, ColoWrap delivers sustained, adjustable pressure to splint the patient’s sigmoid and transverse colon, enabling quicker and easier scope advancement.

“I use the ColoWrap in patients with obesity, prior abdominal surgeries, or a history of difficult colonoscopies. In my experience, the ColoWrap makes many of the procedures easier and aids with completion.”Dr. Jeff Zaidman Charlotte Gastroenterology
“Even seasoned endoscopists encounter challenging colonoscopies, and for those cases, I rely on ColoWrap. It really helps.”Dr. Stephen Schutz Digestive Health Clinic
“I have been using ColoWrap for over three year now. My staff and I have found it most helpful for patients at either side of the BMI extreme, those with previously incomplete colonoscopies, those with redundant colons, or those that are difficult to sedate. Our nurses are thankful thankful as we feel that we are preventing occupational injuries, as well as getting to the cecum faster, and not being as fatigued as we inspect for polyps.”Dr. Tommy Yen Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group

“Use of the ColoWrap in my unit has increased patient and staff satisfaction. Patients have been noted to have less abdominal pain related to looping and manual abdominal pressure. We have also seen a decrease in post-procedure events related to abdominal pain and complications. In addition, use of ColoWrap has greatly reduced our staff injury rate. In the past, Endo nurses and technicians suffered shoulder and back injuries due to the application of constant abdominal pressure. This decrease in injuries and workman's compensation has added to the financial health of the unit, as well as the hospital.”Lisa Fleming, RN Nurse Manager, Highland Hospital
