Hybrid

Maybe you’re looking for a hybrid wire that combines attributes from both nitinol and stainless steel wire guides. Look no further than our latest offering, the Motion™ Hybrid Wire Guide. It’s essentially two wire guides in one.

Motion™ Hybrid Wire Guide
Used to facilitate the placement of endourological instruments during diagnostic or interventional procedures. Features a nitinol core and a stainless steel PTFE jacket. It is designed to give you access and control during a procedure with just one wire.

Nitinol

Nitinol—a nickel titanium alloy—is flexible and resists kinking. Our nitinol wire guides have a hydrophilic coating to reduce friction, and they feature 1:1 torque control that enables you to maneuver the wire guide with precision.

Designed with a PTFE coating for tactile control and maneuverability, our stainless steel wire guides give you the firmness to access and navigate the urinary tract.
