Cardiac rhythm


Cardiac Rhythm Management

Sometimes our hearts need a little outside help in order to keep going. Fort Wayne Metals’ bioconductor wires possess a combination of mechanical strength and electrical conductivity typically desired by our customers for pacemakers and defibrillators.  Our experienced team of engineers will dedicate their time and effort in order to help you customize your wire to your specific needs.

End Product Examples

Defibrillation systems including defibrillators and other devices used in the treatment of tachycardia

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)

Ventricular Assist Devices (VAD)

Examples of alloy composites

  • 35N LT®- DFT®-28%Ag - provides a high level of strength and fatigue resistance
  • NiTi-DFT®-30%Ta - combines the resilience of Nitinol with the radiopacity and conductivity of a Tantalum core
  • Pt 10Ir – DFT® 80% 35N LT® - provides a high level pf strength and fatigue resistance with the radiopacity and conductivity of a platinum outer sheath
