Catheter Dynamics Performance

The test system simulates the anatomical pathway that a device follows when in-vivo.

Outlined below is the series of tests that the system performs.

Catheter Push

  • This test is designed to ascertain the efficiency of the catheter in terms of transmitting force from the proximal end of the shaft to the distal end.
  • Test performed to Anecto or customer defined requirements.

Catheter Track

  • This test measures the ability of the catheter to travel through the tortuous path/anatomy of the vessel being navigated by the catheter.
  • Test performed to Anecto or customer defined requirements.

Catheter Cross

  • This test measures the ability of the catheter distal section to cross a lesion or restriction, after tracking through a ‘standard’ anatomy (anatomy can be customer defined).
  • Test performed to Anecto or customer defined requirements.

Wire Movement

  • This test provides an indication of the interaction between the catheter and the guide wire as the catheter travels along the tortuous path.
  • Test performed to Anecto or customer defined requirements.

Wire Torsion

  • This test provides a measure of the responsiveness of the wire as the user attempts to steer it along the tortuous path.

Anecto can provide representative anatomical models in PVA and Silicon – healthy, diseased etc.
