Teleflex Medical OEM announces
the Rotator Lock Introducer with a PTFE Peelable Sheath/Dilator
Teleflex Medical OEM, a preeminent global outsource provider focusing on medical devices and orthopedic surgical instruments, now offers an introducer with PTFE peelable sheath/dilator and rotator lock.
This new generation of introducer is offered by the TFX OEM brand, which offers a full range of solutions for extrusions, catheter fabrication, and custom devices (such as introducers, dilators, and OTNs) — all integral components in access, procedural and closure devices.
Features of the Rotator Lock Introducer with PTFE Peelable Sheath/Dilator include:
•Lower insertion forces during placement.
•The sheath hub incorporates a leak-free design, maximizing safety and minimizing blood loss.
•Reduced drag on catheter during placement through the sheath.
•Smooth dependable peel.
•The sheath hub splits in a unique snapping fashion, providing a clean and crisp break.
•The dilator can rotate when locked—or when tightened, it can restrict the rotation of the rotator dilator. This conscious rotating locking system minimizes the risk of accidental unlocking and dilator push back.
•The Sheath has an ergonomically designed hub, which allows for easier handling by offering:
-Raised surface for good grip.
-Smooth, round and arched underside which reduces risk of compromising surgical gloves.
-Large wings allow for easier manipulation, breaking and peeling during removal.
