ONe more time – the four basic movements

  1. Thumb 👎 elevates the tip.
  2. Thumb 👍 drops it down.
  3. Tip up? Right goes RIGHT
  4. Tip down? Right goes LEFT
  • Rotational movements left or right are dependent on whether you’re in the up or down position.
  • There is no movement right or left if the tip is in the neutral position.  
  • All movement comes from the dominant hand. Do not grab distal end too tightly or torque it with non-dominant hand
  • Keep it straight. Too much curve and no movement can be transmitted.
  • If you’re with us in person, pick up the scope at this station and practice until if feels natural to you. 🤚
