Medical Wire Products at California Fine Wire
As technology has advanced, California Fine Wire Co. has been instrumental in the medical device development process by supplying high quality fine wire products. Customers range from small research and university laboratories to worldwide medical manufacturers, for products ranging from neural and stimulation probes to cutting edge devices such as cochlear implants and personal defibrillators . California Fine Wire can supply small prototype runs up to production runs of fine to ultra-fine (down to 0.0004" diameter) wire of various metals and alloys such as platinum, platinum/iridium, platinum/tungsten and nickel/chromium alloys.
Wire probes and stimulators have been in use since the late 1950s for implants and probes in animals. With the revolutionary progress in computer technology and digital signal processing over the past several years, fine and exceptional quality wire has seen a great upswing for human use as medical probes and stimulators. Some examples of the boundless uses for our wire are listed below:
Neural prosthesis: Use of implanted neural probes to process electrical transmissions for operation of external devices in cases of spinal cord injuries, stroke, and other major injuries.
Muscle stimulation: Use of implanted electrodes to help restore muscle use after long periods of immobility from illness or accidents.
Pain control / Pain control + medication control: Biofeedback implants for treatment of chronic pain.
Cardiac: Pacemaker probes and stimulators for heartbeat regulation.
Catheters: Minimally invasive procedures involving the heart, brain, urinary tract, and many others may use wire as guides, structural support, heaters, or for signal transmission.
As you can see, California Fine Wire materials can be used in a wide number of applications requiring superior wire product. At California Fine Wire, high quality and fine wire diameter is not just our goal, it's our specialty!
