Innoview history


In 1994, Frank Dorer founded the company in Umkirch under the name baho Medizintechnik GmbH. The experience he had already gathered working in endoscope production drove him to focus his knowledge on the design and manufacture of endoscopes.


We were able to enter the US market in the years 1996 – 2000 with the FDA's 510(k) approval. In 2003, the company headquarters was moved to a larger building across the street. Since then the company's address has been Am Laidhölzle 1 in Umkirch.



In 1998 baho Medizintechnik GmbH was first certified DIN EN ISO 13485 and ISO 9001. We are proud of the quality of our products for medical and industrial applications.


Merger with the company Rudolf, based in Tuttlingen, to form Rudolf-Innoview GmbH. The merger was used to optimally combine instruments from the fields of minimally invasive surgery and endoscopy. Bringing the two companies together also enabled optimising their market presence.



Since 2011 we have been operating as an independent company again, under the name Innoview GmbH, in order to allow us to act autonomously and concentrate fully on new ideas and innovations.


In 2018 we opened our new site in Eichstetten to ensure we are ready for sustainable expansion. Our new offices and production halls take us a step further toward market leadership in the high-quality endoscopy products segment.



Since this year our products are certified by mdc medical device certification according to DIN EN ISO 13485. The certificates can be downloaded from our homepage at "Services"


Since this year, our products are certified by the MDC Medical Device Certification according to Regulation (EU) 2017/745 (MDR). You can find the certificates for download on our homepage under the "Service" section.


Precision in your hands

From arthroscopy to laparoscopy and urology, our wide range of products can be used in numerous applications. To your benefit. 

We subject our well-planned and adaptable processes to continuous optimisation. This enables us to ensure short and punctual delivery times. Our market position allows us to act flexibly and to deliver the best endoscopy products, perfectly adapted to your needs. 

We approach new developments in endoscopy with ambition. Experienced, creative and innovative people work in our own research department. Well-practiced yet inventive, they will expertly check your individual requests and make you innovative offers that are bound to convince you. All these factors result in high-quality endoscopes. 

We are ISO 13485- and ISO 9001-certified. Since 1997, we also have the FDA 510(k) approval for the USA. Our quality development foresees additional controls after every production step, meaning that the quality of our endoscopes is repeatedly tested at different levels.
