Pentax

Service and Solutions Backed by History

Established in 1919, PENTAX Medical is a globally diversified organization that specializes in video and fiber endoscopy equipment for observation, therapeutic, and research applications in a range of medical fields. Specifically within the ENT & Speech field, PENTAX Medical has forged a strong reputation through the roots of Kay Elemetrics Corp, a company founded in 1947 and incorporated in 1970. With a focused shift to medical instrumentation during the early ’90s, Kay Elemetrics Corp became known as “world leaders in speech, voice, and swallowing,” credited for introducing and commercializing the first-ever digital stroboscopy system. In 2005, PENTAX Medical acquired Kay Elemetrics Corp, and KayPENTAX was born.

Supporting the Speech and Voice Community

Building from the foundation established by Kay Elemetrics Corp, PENTAX Medical boasts a combined 30 years of experience in developing effective, easy-to-use tools and solutions for otolaryngologists and speech language pathologists as part of its ENT & Speech division, including:

  • Renowned digital stroboscopy systems
  • Cost-effective general endoscopy systems
  • Swallowing and speech assessment products

PENTAX Medical speech products, which include Acoustic, Aerodynamic, and Nasometry product offerings, have become the standard of care for clinical speech language pathologists and voice specialists. Well-engineered and reliable, they provide objective measures of patient voice and speech to support an evidence-based treatment selection, and visual and auditory bio-feedback to help achieve therapy goals.
