The use of smartphone in healthcare field is increasing, in particular within the field of endoscopy that usually involves expensive and often cumbersome equipment. The objective is to offer a novel adapter connected to the smartphone with modern endoscopes, exploiting the camera for viewing and recording. The design and operation are described in this article. The adapter demonstrated feasibility of coupling endoscopes to a smartphone. It makes endoscopy easier and unrelated to location and time.
