* Bench test data on file. N=22 for Launcher; N=15 for RUNWAY. Bench test results may not necessarily be indicative of clinical performance. 

Curve Retention: Testing measures the ability of the catheter to effectively retain its curve shape while placed in water at body temperature (37° C). Smaller changes in the curve angles may increase the catheter’s ability to direct the therapy device to the intended target site. Tip Softness: Testing measures the force absorbed by the catheter’s tip when compressed or deflected at 0,02’’ (0.51 mm). Lower force indicates a softer tip.
