Load cells developed by FUTEK are helping physicians carry out
intravascular procedures by providing the necessary force measurements to safely
navigate robotic catheters.
Manoeuvring the robotic catheter in intravascular procedures demands accuracy,
sensitivity and the utmost precision with little margin for error.
The conceptual diagram above shows a Jr. S-Beam miniature load cell (LSB200)
located on the guide wire extending from the robotic arm. The LSB200 measures
tension on the wire and the feedback is used by the physician to control the
direction and motion of the catheter. Measurement feedback can be streamed
through FUTEK’s USB Solutions to a central control system.
FUTEK’s LSB200 Miniature S-Beam Jr. load cell gives medical
practitioners the precision necessary for robotic intravascular procedures.
