Our continuous development of new technologies allows us to integrate electronic components like microchips, storage devices and cameras into catheter systems.
High precision and ease of use are a constant focus at RAUMEDIC. We develop and manufacture catheters and systems ordered by our customers in line with market requirements.
An example of our know-how is a probe that is used in oncology for locating and treating prostate cancer. The micro cables are drawn into the polyurethane tube. A connection is made with an electronic component at the application end and with a plug at the equipment end.
A number of different production techniques are used here, for example, crimping and soldering. The electronic components are then coated. Thanks to the linking of these electronic components to a catheter, the doctor is able to irradiate the tumour tissue more rapidly and accurately in the final application.
Central to this are both the minimisation of patient exposure and a more effective and thus more economic use of the radiation unit.
The RAUMEDIC CE-certified catheters include other examples of the integration of electronic components. These catheters can be used to make measurements on temperature, pressure and oxygen.
You can find information on these catheters under clinical applications and practice.
