Custom Flexible Shafts

Custom flexible shafts are available from S.S. White Technologies, St. Petersburg, FL. Flexible shafts transmit rotary motion much like a solid shaft, but can be curved over, under, and around areas in ways a solid shaft cannot. This allows the minimally invasive applicator systems to position the proximal and distal ends of an implant (an anchor) within a blood vessel and to deploy the spiral anchor into the vascular wall. Flexible shafts are commonly used in surgical applications, especially in surgical power tools and tools used in minimally invasive procedures. Typical uses include handheld screw drivers, heart valve repair, laparoscopic and endoscopic surgical equipment, and robotic assisted surgery technology.
