Robotic Catheter Force Measurement

  |  
Application Summary
Accuracy and sensitivity are extremely critical during intravascular procedures. In this application, FUTEK’s LSB200 Miniature S-Beam Jr. Load Cell gives medical practitioners the accuracy and precision that is necessary for robotic intravascular procedures.
Products in Use
Miniature S-Beam Jr. (LSB200) paired with Instrumentation (USB Solutions or IAA Series Amplifier). View Product Details
Load Cell - Robotic Catheter Force Measurement
How it Works
  1. Catheter procedures demand the utmost precision and leave little margin for error.
  2. Feedback provided by the LSB200 gives physicians the necessary force measurements to navigate the catheter safely.
  3. In the above application, a Miniature S-Beam Jr. Load Cell (LSB200) is located on the guide wire extending from the robotic arm. The LSB200 measures tension on the wire and this information is used to control the direction and motion of the catheter.
  4. Measurement feedback can be streamed through FUTEK’s USB Solutions to a central control system.
