At the same time they are extremely flexible and possess outstanding properties. Electrical and mechanical characteristics can be ensured by using high-tech materials such as special alloys and insulating materials. Particular requirements such as biocompatibility (cytotoxicity) according to EN ISO 10993-5 and sterilization procedures (wet/steam sterilization (autoclave) and dry heat sterilization) as well as an application-optimized surface feel are all given careful consideration when designing an HEW-Micro cable.
The range of applications requiring custom cable solutions includes highly sensitive ones such as minimally invasive surgical techniques and other innovations in medicine and sensor technology. To name a few examples from the field of electrosurgery and patient monitoring systems: electrical scalpels enable the surgeon to make precise cuts with limited blood loss; SpO² sensors measure the saturation of the blood oxygen. The customized miniature cables are also used for imaging procedures and image processing such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or (video-) endoscopy.
All Micro solutions are made with highest accuracy and utmost care to meet the high demands. Quality, reliability and security: This is what HEW-Micro stands for.
