Advantage of PLASTICS in Medical Devices

With a better understanding of medical grade engineering polymers in mind, let's explore a few advantages they have to offer the health care industry :

Comparatively Light Weight Versatility (infinite possibilities in Healthcare) Easy Sterilization Greater Safety Improved Quality Of Life Cost-Effective Great Potential for Future Innovations.

NEW GENERATION OF POLYMERS ARE NOW AVIALBLE FOR MORE COMPLEX AND CHALLENGING MEDICAL DEVICE APPLICATIONS, Such As

EPIDURAL CATHETERS : An epidural catheter is a very fine plastic catheter (tube) that is placed through the skin into the epidural space in your spine. ... The catheter allows access to the epidural space to inject medication such as local anaesthetics and/or narcotics for relief of pain.

Prosthetics : Prosthetics make life better for countless amputees. Many of the advancements in comfort, range of motion and durability come from plastics.

ANGIOPLASTY

  • The angioplasty catheter is a good example of a life saving medical device that would not be possible without plastics.

  • Ballon angioplasty is a minimally invasive non-surgical alternative to coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. The angioplasty ballon is used to compress obstructing plaque in a clogged artery against the arterial wall so that blood can flow freely again.
