Medical equipment company plans headquarters in southern Indiana

Posted: Updated:

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- A medical equipment company is planning a new headquarters in southern Indiana.

The state says Monday that Inscope Medical Solutions, which develops suction and video laryngoscopes, is moving forward with the plans. The devices help quickly clear a patient's airway during medical procedures to make breathing possible.

Inscope Medical launched its research and development in nearby Louisville, Kentucky, in 2014, before locating its headquarters in Jeffersonville in December. It recently took the top prize in the Venture Club of Indiana's Innovation Showcase Pitch Competition, receiving a $100,000 prize package.

The company's laryngoscopes are undergoing a clinical study, with plans for the first devices to be commercially available this fall.
