PcoMed exploits basic material properties, electrical properties such as surface effects, and less explored nanotechnologies in order to delver unique conductors with radically improved performance.

 

Our scientists do this with their expertise in material science and advanced physics-based surface construction plus their years of experience in nano-structure fabrication and nano-surface creation.

 

PcoMed amplifies these basic material, electrical and surface properties by exploiting the benefits of nano-structures and nano-surfaces.  For example, dramatically increasing the surface area of a conductor through nano-texturing extends surface electrical effect dramatically leading to even better signal-to-noise performance and electrical transmission efficiency than is possible without employing nanotechnology.

Multiple Surface Conductors on Tubes

PcoMed's surface conductor technology allows multiple surface conductors on tubing and other substrates.  PcoMed has demonstrated performance with up to 8 surface conductors on catheter tubing.

Reduced Size. Improved Signal to Noise.
Improved Conduction Efficiency.

 Exploit the benefits of surface conduction to shrink size, improve signal to noise ratios and improve electrical

efficiency in ablation, sensing, diagnostic and other catheters.

 

 

REVOLUTIONIZING MEDICAL CONDUCTOR PERFORMANCE

Non-fracturing conductors for leads

 

Incredibly small size

  • Traditional electrical performance in 165µ - the diameter of a single human hair

  • To dramatize performance, PcoMed has powered an electric clothes dryer with just FIVE 165µconductors

 

Multiple conductors on tubing - up to 8 so far.

 

Improved signal to noise ratios and more efficient transmission to shrink catheter sizes

 

Simultaneous light, data, electrical sensing and electrical stimulation in a single conductor package.

Far less intrusive.  

 

Greater design and engineering flexibility.  

 

Freedom from plastic deformation fatigue.

 

Elimination of conductor failure from all sources including inculation degradation,

shorting, etc. when combined with PcoMed's other surface technologies.

MicroSCAPE

TM

MicroSCAPE Conductors conquer plastic deformation fatigue by marrying a silica-core optical fiber with a micro-thin, nano-structured, hyper-flexible metal surface conductor that flexes in tandem with the optical fiber.

 

  • Silica core conductors flex virtually indefinitely without showing any plastic deformaion fatugue.

  • The metal surface's nano-structure provides it with hyper-flexibility that matches the flexibility of the silica fiber to deliver a conductor that will outlive a patient.

  • Just about any metal can be used for the surface conductor

Non-fracturing Lead Conductors for Cardio, Neuro and Spinal

Conquering Plastic Deformation Fatigue is a Big Deal for Lead Conductors

MicroSCAPE conductors allows fabrication of finished leads less than 2 French in diameter. Conductors can be fabricated in various diameters using a broad range of metal conductors.

 

PcoMed's surface conductor technology can be matched with its cell control technology and barrier surfaces to deliver leads with important benefits:

  • No plastic deformation fatigue allows leads to outlive patients

  • <2 French finished diameter is ideal for neuro, spinal and cardio applications

  • No fibrous tissue formation to allow easier lead removal

  • Barrier surfaces prevent fluid penetration and shorting

  • Barrier surfaces prevent insulation degradation from body fluid exposure

  • Simplified, straight conductor/lead design allows 50% fabrication cost reduction through complete lead automation

Benefits of MicroSCAPE

Demonstrated Performance has been impressive:

  • Conductors have survived 5 million flex test cycles around a 3mm pin (without failure)

  • Conductors have survived 2 million flex test cycles around a 1.5mm pin (without failure)

  • Side-by-side, in vivo, acute animal pacing tests demonstrated performance comparable to a Medtronic pacing lead.

Performance

Small size allows greater engineering and design flexibility plus better access, particularly in neuo and spinal applications.
