Lead Tubing

Applications

Cardiac Rhythm Management and Neurostimulation

Vesta’s precision extrusion solutions optimize the clinical outcome of polyurethane and silicone electro-stimulation lead tubing for active electrode applications.

Function

Protective Covering, Biomechanical Stability, Insulation

Lead tubing is used in various active electrode applications, such as insulation to cover the electrodes used to deliver an electrical stimulus.

Description

Implantable Lead Tubing for Active Electrode Applications

Vesta lead tubing adheres to the highest level of precision for dimensional, surface, cosmetic and mechanical properties. In addition, the highest level of process and quality control ensure correct tolerance, surface finish and cosmetic specifications for all of our lead tubing.

Technology

Materials, Tooling, Process and Quality Control

We optimize product attributes by developing material-specific extrusion processes, tooling and controls such as surface, abrasion resistance, biomechanical properties, torque and pushability. Our annealing process helps alleviate the internal stresses and dimensional instability inherent in polyurethane tubing. Our team is well trained in inspection to ensure precision and quality.
