The Kronner Low Profile Scope Holder is used to hold endoscopes such as laparoscopes during endoscopic surgery. It firmly holds the position of the scope and frees the operators' hands for other tasks. The Holder attaches to the side rail of the operating table. It may be located on either side of the table and away from the operating area. A telescoping arm holds the endoscope. It the rare event it interferes with other instruments, it can quickly be positioned out of the way. An electronic control is attached to the camera where it is readily accessible. Pressing a button on the control releases joints for quick position changes. This can be done with the hand used to move the scope. The position is held by gas pressure available in the operating room.
