Distal Access SPINR from Distal Access
SPINR-Distal Access
Medical device regulatory, reimbursements, and clinician buying /use patterns are changing:
  • Ongoing clinician, hospital, patient, government, and insurance payor scrutiny over the use of high-cost disposable devices.
  • Clinical data confirms that many high-cost devices have significant technical failure rates.
  • Clinical and financial pressures to “do more with less” without sacrificing patient safety.
  • Clinician request to
    • Improve control and feel for medical device actuation and use.
    • Improve the safety, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness of “First-Use” technologies.

Drilling, considered the workhorse technique... penetration is preferable for heavy calcified or resistant lesions and also be used as an alternative to drilling after initial soft wire failure”
Leon, Harrington, Kahn, 2011

“Controlled drilling is a standard technique … …drilling minimizes the likelihood of creating large dissection and can improve torque control and tactile response.”
Thompson 2009
The SPINR as a novel, easy-to-use, and effective controller to torque, spin, and oscillate guidewires, catheters, and other medical devices.

Each full squeeze of the SPINR predictably spins a wire, catheter, or other devices 3 or 5 times clockwise depending on which SPINR is used. When the user releases the handles, the device predictably spins counter-clockwise. Clinician’s control how fast, and how much, a given device spins depending on how fast, and how far, the clinician squeezes the handles.

The SPINR’s clockwise and counterclockwise oscillation and torque control facilitates improved performance during numerous procedures.
SPINR Guidewire Controller
SPINR is a simple and elegant guidewire controller.
SPINR Guidewire Controller 1. Loosen the distal cap
2. Insert a 0.014 – 0.038” guidewire into the distal cap,
3. Advance the SPINR in a distal direction as the guidewire is fed through the SPINR,
4. Twist the cap to torque down on the guidewire,
5. Squeeze the handles to predictably spin the guidewire clockwise and counterclockwise,
6. Advance or retract the SPINR proximal and distal as needed.
