A medical device company was looking to create a highly differentiated solution to quickly cauterize exit wounds in femoral arteries. Using existing technology, wounds caused by the removal of catheters during heart procedures were taking hours to heal. To speed up the cauterization process, Minco integrated a flex circuit with a heater and sensor to create a highly reliable device that was able to reach a target temperature of 100 degree Celsius in less than six minutes. The new configuration not only improves cauterization speed, but it also improves reliability by reducing the number of failure points.
