We have been developing and manufacturing medical and industrial endoscopes for over 20 years.
As one of the few OEMs on the market, our products are used all over the world. A large number of our endoscopes are used every single day without our name being included on them. The high quality of the components used, our long-standing experience in production as well as the quality and innovative strength of our developments all guarantee maximum customer satisfaction.
Our success on the market shows we know what matters to our customers. With the special techniques that we use and our continual quality checks, our endoscopes guarantee many years of use on patients, high levels of product safety and optimal imaging quality for simplified application during minimally invasive surgery.
As well as our diverse standard range, our strengths also lie in the development of new products. Technology in the field of medical technology never stops progressing, meaning that we are always working at the cutting edge.
And you can contact us with your own ideas and challenges as well – we will find an innovative solution together.
In the field of technology in particular, it's clear to see how quickly new developments are being put into action these days, and how technological progress is becoming increasingly important.
Ever since endoscopic procedures first started being used, there has been a constant stream of newly discovered application areas, newly identified fields of operation and newly developed techniques, making operations easier for surgeons and more gentle for patients.
Our objective is to work with you to come up with new ideas and offer new perspectives on the future of medical technology.

In 1994, Frank Dorer set up the company in Umkirch, under the name of baho Medizintechnik GmbH. The experience that he had already gained working in the field of endoscope construction drove him to use his knowledge to focus on the development and production of endoscopes.
In 1998, the company baho Medizintechnik GmbH was certified to DIN EN ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 for the first time. You can find our certificates below.
We entered the USA market between 1996 and 2000, with the FDA 510(k) approval. In 2003, the company headquarters moved to a larger building on the other side of the street, and the company has been based at Laidhölzle 1 in Umkirch ever since.
Merged with the company Rudolf in Tuttlingen to form Rudolf-InnoView GmbH. This merger was used to create the optimal combination of instruments for the fields of minimally invasive surgery and endoscopy. Being a joint company allowed for optimal market cultivation.
Since 2011 we began operating on the market as an independent company again, under the name of InnoView GmbH, meaning that we can act independently and focus fully on new ideas and innovations.
