Hew-Kabel developed special cables for medical technology with a Hew-Silindo® jacket, which makes them particularly suitable for use in diagnostics, surgery and patient monitoring. With absolutely no foreign matter in the silicone or on the surface, this permanently minimizes sliding friction. Even after being autoclaved over five hundred times, Hew-Selindo® reliably prevents the stick-slip effect on patients or components of medical systems. The result: outstanding performance properties combined with comfortable haptics.
The combination of optimized cable structure, high-performance materials and patented manufacturing techniques ensures excelent mechanical characteristics even with small dimensions. Hew-Silindo® can be sterilized and is biocompatible according to EN ISO 10993-5. Depending on the application, Hew-Silindo® medical cables offer many key properties. Types used for medical robots combine Hew-Kabel’s long experience in industrial robotics with its medical expertise. Products optimized for medical robots can combine fiber optic cables, coax elements, single wires and strain relief and can resist considerable tensile as well as torsional loads.
Hew medical cables for patient monitoring systems fulfill the highest demands regarding the quality of the signal transmission. As miniaturized low-noise cables, they minimize and eliminate external influences such as friction, torsion or vibrations, which cause considerable disruptive signals in the form of triboelectric and microphonic noise, and have considerable influence on signal quality.
