ProPlate® will be showcasing two new catheter innovations, Torq-Lok™ and Vizi-Band™. Torq-Lok™ is a patent pending metal coating process that is atomically bonded to a catheter braid, fusing the cross sections together as one. This innovation improves torque transmission and ultimate yield strength for braided catheters. Preliminary testing has showed a 39% increase in torque transmission, and a 76% increase in ultimate yield strength compared to traditional catheters. Vizi-Band™ is a patent pending radiopaque marker coating process that replaces traditional marker bands. It is atomically bonded to the catheter and can be applied anywhere along the catheter shaft.
