Utilizing MSI’s simulated use testing equipment, the IDTE, following stepped parameters that control and record insertion/withdraw- distance, speed, and delay MSI Labs quantitatively collect forces required to track a catheter or device through a tortuous path that mimics challenging in vivo physiologic/anatomic conditions.

Standard test methods include:

  • Simulated use
  • Lesion cross-ability force
  • Push efficiency
  • Catheter-guide wire compatibility
  • Flexibility/kink force
  • Bifurcation “kissing” stent force
  • Insertion force measurement
  • Preconditioning cycles
