Pure Platinum

Platinum has been used extensively in the medical field for more than 40 years and has contributed to many major advances in medical care since the mid-20th century. It offers a lightweight, safe, more affordable and easier-to-use option for surgical matters, and it’s used in several ways across the healthcare industry.

Benefits

Platinum is easily transformed into other shapes to meet medical needs such as rods, ribbons, sheets and wires. And, since it is highly resistant to corrosion with a high oxidation temperature, it can withstand most environments without sustaining significant damage or chemical alteration.

This metal is used in electromedical devices as well as in catheters, stents and neuromodulation devices. It is ideal for these applications because of its durability, conductivity and biocompatibility. The metal is inert within the body, making it safe for implantation without allergic reactions. It is also radiopaque, so it is clearly visible in X-ray images, enabling doctors to monitor the position of the device during treatment.
