    Need to develop exercise and stretching protocol design specifically for gastroenterologist for strengthening muscles not used typically by the public, and which may prevent injuries. Stretching routines to be done in conjunction with strengthening as well as in between procedures. Finally, if an injury does occur, list the mist common and potential therapies to be applied.
    Lastly, endoscope developer companies should develop a power stirring devise for the knobs similar to the used in cars so that endoscopists don’t need to exert that much pressure/strength when moving the knobs. In addition, the scope knobs should be softer and edges rounded to avoid traumatic pressure in the fingers.
