Optimize Performance in Complex Anatomy
TWISTER® Core Wire Technology is designed to optimize wire control in complex anatomy by providing a balance of support and kink-resistance.

A proprietary process stimulates micro lattice refinement of the core wire alloy to enable “hybrid” design characteristics. Product designs employing TWISTER® Technology will benefit from the support of a stainless steel alloy and enhanced shape-resistance properties necessary to deliver superior torque control during even the most challenging cases.

Features & Benefits
Improves resistance to wire deformation without compromising wire support or pushability
Enhances torque control (steering) by reducing core twisting during torsional transfer
Reduces tip shape loss during the procedure
to facilitate vessel selection and reselection

Boost Torque Control
MICRORIDGE® extends guidewire control to the fingertips of physicians.

Industry-exclusive stabilizing ridge minimizes twisting in the distal core flat providing superior torque control (20% more torque when compared to non-ridged designs).  Additionally, MICRORIDGE® improves pushability by directing force to the distal tip minimizing tip prolapse.

Features & Benefits:
Delivers superior torque control (1:1 transmission) retention by minimizing twisting in the distal core flat
Improves guidewire delivery by minimizing tip prolapse and directing proximal “push” forces in the direction of the distal tip
