Philips has a strong portfolio in Image Guided Therapy and minimally invasive interventional devices (catheters, guidewires). The University of Tartu and Philips aim to implement polymer actuators in medical interventional devices to achieve a breakthrough in steerability by bending the tip on demand, enabling a substantial reduction in procedure time and enabling access to more branched and tortuous vessels. The improved access will allow better treatment of peripheral vascular and neuro-vascular diseases as well as improving navigation through stenosed (narrowed) vessels. In the project generic technology on polymer actuators will be adapted to the required biocompatibility, size, response time and force. The enhanced actuators will be integrated into a guidewire and properties evaluated in advanced phantom models; demonstrating and validating that this new platform technology can be used reliably and safely. With this proof, Philips can justify investments to develop the product for market introduction, including education & training to clinicians, which will enable access for hundreds of millions of patients to minimally invasive interventions.
