200 Years in the making

It’s Time for
Something New

For years, the vaginal speculum has been the same clunky, cold, painful, invasive device as when it was first invented nearly 200 years ago.

Meet Nella, the first redesign of the speculum to put the patient and clinician experience first, emphasizing comfort and ease of use.

NELLA IS A GAME CHANGER
