Medical Case Study
Disposable Adult-Length Lead Wires
An electrocardiogram (ECG) OEM needed an adult-length pre-wired electrode.
Stringent new Medicare requirements for coverage of infections created a market demand for disposable ECG lead wires
Design required a “low-profile” assembly for ease of application and maximum patient comfort
Minnesota Wire drew on its decades-long expertise with neonatal ECG electrodes to produce a robust and inexpensive design.
Engineered for zero-failure, one-time use
New adult-application length
Low-profile design using a highly conductive plastic tab
Eliminated the possibility of cross infection from patient to patient
Unique sonic welding process
