Who we are

Lys Medical is a spin-off from the Université libre de Bruxelles  and was established in 2018. Located in Belgium, we develop endoscopic devices from the initial idea through to the CE marking. Our manufacturing process is undertaken in-house, enabling us to be extremely agile whilst maintaining complete control over the quality and the safety of our devices.

At Lys Medical we decided to internalize the whole development from the idea to the manufacturing, including the certification.
We are committed to provide our customers with high quality products that complied with the strictest quality and safety standards.
