MWS Wire entered the medical industry in 1976 when it developed a two strand wire for a Temporary Atrial Pacing Electrode. Today, MWS produces specialty wire solutions that are incorporated into intravascular ultrasound imaging systems, intracardiac ablation catheters and systems, intracardiac mapping catheters, cardiac rhythm products, spinal cord stimulators, endoscopic therapeutic devices, and treatment devices for cerebral vascular disease.
Insulated wires used in catheter designs create conductive pathways that carry energy the length of the catheter device. Wires used to deliver RF energy for tissue ablation are incorporated into devices used in the medical fields of orthopedic surgery (arthroscopy), gastroenterology (endoscopy), gynecology (laparoscopy), as well as multiple interventional cardiology procedures. Wires used in conjunction with micro sensors also serve a diagnostic function in measuring temperature, pressure, and flow rate.
