Braided & Coiled Catheter Shafts

Braided & Coiled Catheter Shafts

Custom catheter sleeves developed and manufactured to meet your specific performance requirements in the most cost-effective way possible.

Collaborate with engineers who can bring your idea to life. Our experts leverage their experience, having designed hundreds of different catheter shafts, and use proprietary processes to provide thin-walled, braided and coiled catheters ranging from 1.5F to 28F. We will work with you to find the right balance between column strength, flexibility, kink resistance and torque response in the thinnest wall possible to meet your performance requirements.
