STEER-IT Deflecting Tip Guidewire
Farm and Cordis worked together on the complete design and development of the STEER-IT Deflecting Tip Guidewire delivery handle, the smallest, steerable guidewire in the industry. The STEER-IT is intended for use in angiographic procedures to introduce and position catheters and interventional devices within the coronary and peripheral vasculature. Farm’s development team conducted observations of surgical procedures and interviews with interventional cardiologists, which led to the development of concepts and early prototypes. Preference testing was then completed to determine the most essential features that addressed usability and workflow. The result is a small, single hand operated device that enables agility, sensitivity and proficiency when navigating through tortuous anatomy.
