The company

Richard Wolf GmbH offers a wide range of products and systems for endoscopy and extracorporeal shock wave treatment. Instruments are supplied to virtually all specialist disciplines in human medicine.

The product range is supplemented by Operating Room Management Systems which are marketed under the name core nova. The core nova system relieves personnel working in operating theatres from the burden of having to carry out organizational and administrative tasks and this makes the system equally appropriate for hospitals and medical practices. Industrial endoscopes complete the range of instruments available.
