What is Throat Scope?

Throat Scope is an illuminated tongue depressor and retraction tool. Throat Scope provides one handed intraoral examination (for non compliant patients) and a light source located inside the oral cavity for a clear view of the throat, teeth, tongue, palate and gums.

Throat Scope includes a reusable light handle and a single use depressor, which easily slides together to provide a light source located inside the oral cavity.

Throat Scope is used by Healthcare Professionals in Clinics, Hospitals, Universities and Teleclinics around the world.


Why use Throat Scope?

Throat Scope improves patient oral assessment and outcomes, decreasing the risk of misdiagnosis within clinics and hospitals.

Throat Scope lights up the throat, teeth, tongue, palate and gums for accurate intraoral examinations. Healthcare Professionals use Throat Scope to complete routine intraoral examinations, oral health screenings, oral cancer screenings, oral mechanism examinations, articulation therapy and feeding therapy.

I'm a school nurse and with all the strep and flu going around, I am going to fly through my box of 100!
Throat Scope is life changing for me! It makes checking kids a breeze. I am awestruck! I'm a "one man band" it's singing praises to professionals and family and friends. Brilliant!

Paula - School Nurse


We are loving using our new Throat Scopes in the clinic. What a difference it makes to be able to see inside our 'littlies' mouths quickly and easily. What a great idea! Also very useful for identifying air escaping down the nose during speech for our Cleft Palate clients as it so happens!

Kim - Speech Language Pathologist


This is an absolute essential for every dental and medical practitioner to provide the best possible oral assessment and ability to discover oral cancer in its earliest stages

Jo-Anne - Dental Hygienist & Motivational Speaker


Throat Scope is high-tech compared to the organic incumbent

This is a product that I have been using like crazy with a few of my /k/ and /g/ kids, actually all of my kids. It also looks like a light saber which makes every kid want to do it. Finally a therapy tool we can afford!

Jenna - Speech Language Pathologist - Speech Room News


It lights up the whole mouth! You can see a lot more than redness at the back of the mouth #brilliant

Eva Grayzel - Motivational Speaker for Oral Cancer


Since having the Throat Scope, we have spotted ulcers in the mouth, molars popping throat and a very red throat - luckily no white gross stuff!

Throat Scope provides families and medical practitioners with an easy, fast and accurate device to examine oral cavities. And while that doesn’t sound romantic, it can certainly be life saving.

The Newcastle Herald


Parents and school nurses who have students with special needs who have trouble getting their kids open their mouths long enough to see what going in the back of their throat. At least with Throat Scope, you get a clear look even if it is quick!

Carla Butorac - Speech Language Therapist


What a valuable tool to have at home and very affordable.

This award comes with a lot of “firsts”. While only a couple of Australian companies have been honoured with an Edison Award since their inception in 1987, Holland Healthcare is the first Australian female led company to be recognised. It is also the first Australian medical device to win.

Hunter Headline


Cannot believe my daughter did not gag. She was so excited to have Throat Scope that she didn't mind the usual discomfort that goes along with an oral examination!

Katy - Mother and SLP - Speech Pathology Mama


No more juggling with a torch and a wooden craft stick to look into a kid’s gob. It’s a blessing for clinicians and parents. Who knew oral cavity examinations could be so much fun?

The Australian


The Throat Scope is great. More kid friendly than a traditional tongue depressor and pen-torch, for assessing children's mouth and throat.

Kathryn Harber


This product is well made and arrived really quickly. I love the product and it’s been very useful already.

Melody Humphries





It works, reduces the materials I need, and engages kids. It’s a win

Jenna - Speech Language Pathologist - Speech Room News


Having another 'tool' to help illuminate challenging areas of the mouth including the tongue, floor of the mouth, palate and throat makes earlier discovery more feasible. Great adjunct for screening examinations and oral self exams.

Jo-Anne Jones - Motivational Speaker on Oral Cancer


This is an SLP's dream!

Amanda Schaumburg - Speech Language Pathologist - Panda Speech


My kids love it, it has a light saber element to it

Nacole - Registered Nurse - NurseNacole


It looks like a light saber
