Catheter Torque Test
Application Summary

Interventional device test systems using the ASTM F2394 vascular model are designed to accurately record the performance features of medical including: catheters, guide wires, stent delivery systems, colonoscopes, endoscopes and scope tools. These test systems require precision equipment to satisfy ISO 25539. FUTEK’s Rotary Torque Sensor – Hex-Drive (TRH605) is fixed to the testing system to measure torqueability of a catheter penetrating a tortuous anatomy.

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 torqueability.

  2. Torqueability or torque force refers to the measure of rotational feedback at the distal end of a device while imparting a rotation at the
    proximal end. Precise measurement modules are needed to accurately record findings pertaining to rotational force.

  3. The TRH605 is fixed on the test system to quantify the rotary force exerted to advance the catheter through a tortuous anatomy (Test Tube).

  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 Software.
