What We Believe

At ColoWrap we believe in the power of colonoscopy to save lives. We also believe that it should not be a difficult or painful procedure—for anyone involved. That’s why we designed ColoWrap specifically to mitigate the #1 barrier to an easy colonoscopy—looping. Try it for yourself, and you’ll be a believer too! 

Let's Make Things Better

Imagine a world where patients did not hear the word “cancer.” A world where physicians had time to meaningfully interact with their patients and staff—and their families. Where nurses and technicians were pain-free, joking with their patients at work and living an active life outside of the office. This is the world ColoWrap wants to create. One colonoscopy at a time.
