Presenting the VariSoft In Vivo Tip Controllable Tapered Steerable Guide Wire for Interventional Cardiology

VariSoft provides in vivo variable tip shape, support and  push.

Featuring the proprietary "Torque Tube" for enhanced torque control without whip!

In this video you may observe the unique ability of the VariSoft tapered tip approach wire to be changed dynamically in vivo using the DASH (Dual Actuating Steering Handle) to transform from a very soft and flexible curve, previously formed by the physician, to become straight and stiff for penetrating the lesion, thus offering a straightened low profile with enhanced push and support for crossing through the lesion. After crossing the lesion the tip may again be softened for safely advancing further down the vessel to anchor the wire. At this point, now that the wire is no longer being moved, the tip may again be tensioned to safely offer enhanced lateral support for crossing the lesion with the catheter. Following the intervention, the tip may again be softened to allow for safely steering to the next lesion thus saving time by avoiding the need for wire exchange in handling multiple successive lesions.



Using VariSoft may save any where from ten to thirty minutes per procedure by avoiding the need for guide wire exchanges thus reducing the cost per procedure while improving safety and procedure success.

From this day forward, VariSoft will be the only guide wire your laboratory will require for coronary interventional procedures.

In the video you will see the operation of the DASH (Dual Action Steering Handle) supplied, at no additional charge, with the VariSoft guide wire to protect it in the package and make it ready to use when removed from the protective tube. You will see the wire removed from the tube and formed by the user into a curve which may then be actuated by the DASH to become straight and more supportive thus dynamically transforming VariSoft in vivo from an approach into a crossing wire.

It may take several minutes for the video to start, depending upon the speed of your connection, but it is worth the wait! Your patience is appreciated.

Why use two wires when VariSoft will get you there faster, safer, and at less cost?

Yes, VariSoft may be dynamically transformed by you, in vivo, from an approach into a crossing wire. By avoiding the time required to change wires during your procedures and the added cost of having to use two or more wires, VariSoft will not only make your procedures shorter and thus safer, but less costly. Yes, the .014" VariSoft with it's .010" tapered tip will help to expedite your procedures through a lower profile and increased steerability to increase your probability of shorter, safer and successful procedures, while saving cost.

VariSoft, the in vivo dynamically variable tapered tip, user controllable steerable wire will handle all of your interventional requirements for steerable wires.
