How it Works
- Catheter procedures demand the utmost precision and leave little margin for error.
- Feedback provided by the LSB200 gives physicians the necessary force measurements to navigate the catheter safely.
- 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.
- Measurement feedback can be streamed through FUTEK’s USB Solutions to a central control system.
