The Nella NuSpec is a vaginal speculum designed with patient comfort in mind. The insertion and opening of the speculum is uncomfortable for many patients, but the NuSpec’s narrow four-bill design (about the size of a tampon) and smooth temperature-neutral material optimize comfort. It also opens quietly, without jangling or ratcheting sounds, to minimize patient anxiety. When the provider opens the device, the internal side bills retain vaginal sidewalls, ensuring adequate visibility and access to conduct an exam or procedure. An ergonomically designed handle features a toggle that allows for one-handed locking or unlocking, keeping the provider’s other hand free if needed for instruments.
