Catheter Track Force Test

  |  
Application Summary
Interventional device test systems are designed to accurately record the performance features of medical devices including: catheters, guide wires, stent delivery systems, colonoscopes, endoscopes and scope tools. FUTEK’s Submersible Jr. Miniature S-Beam Load Cell (LSB210) is fixed to the testing system to measure trackability of the catheter through a tortuous anatomy.

Load Cell - Catheter Track Force Test
How it Works
  1. The purpose of an interventional device test is to reduce risk to the patient during medical procedures. Medical researchers conduct test with these systems to learn more about their performance features such as trackability.
  2. Trackability or track force refers to the force required to advance through a tortuous object. Precise measurement modules are needed to accurately record findings of force vs. position.
  3. The LSB210 is fixed on the test system to quantify the force exerted to advance the catheter through a tortuous anatomy. The LSB210’s overload protection feature provides assurance to researchers in case of accidental overload.
  4. These force measures can be streamed to a computer utilizing FUTEK's USB Solutions. FUTEK’s USB modules are configured by the ASCII stream along with the DLL which allows users to integrate custom software if needed.
  5. Once streamed to a computer, that data can then be monitored by FUTEK's SENSIT™ Test and Measurement.
