How It Works

TactiCath™ Ablation Catheter, Sensor Enabled™ Technology Animation

Discover how the TactiCath Ablation Catheter, Sensor Enabled works together with the TactiSys™ Quartz equipment to analyze and reveal the exact magnitude and orientation of contact force.

System components

  • TactiSys™ Quartz Equipment
  • TactCath™ Contact Force Ablation Catheter, Sensor Enabled
  • Ensite™ Precision Cardiac Mapping System

Measure contact force through white light Fabry-Pérot interferometry

Using light interferometry, the TactiCath Contact Force Ablation Catheter, Sensor Enabled makes an interference analysis to compute both magnitude and orientation of contact force.

  • Cavity made of two semi-reflective mirrors in parallel, with air between
  • Light emitted by the TactiSys Quartz equipment and reflected back and forth many times throughout the cavity
  • Titanium body deforms when a force is applied on the tip of the catheter, on order of nanometers, which impacts the light reflected back
