Versatility Modular Handle For Steerable Medical Devices

Versatility Handle and Versatility Mini Handle

Whether you’re developing a steerable device, catheter, or sheath, the Versatility handle platform can help you shave months off your product development timeline, at a fraction of the cost of conventional development.

Fast-track Development

The Versatility handle eliminates the need to design and tool a handle in-house, allowing you to test concepts faster and focus your efforts on developing the clinical potential of your steerable sheath.

Versatile Design

The Versatility handle platform can accommodate shafts up to 24 Fr. The Versatility and Versatility Mini handles feature ready-made molded components you can easily configure for a variety of applications and functionalities:

Versatility handle design articulationVersatility handle design transitionalVersatility handle design rotation
Articulation: Unidirectional, bidirectional, or multiplanar
Translation: Precise advancement/retraction
Rotation: Precise angular positioning

Proven Functionality

With the Versatility handle, we’ve worked out the kinks, so you don’t have to. You get a sleek, robust steerable sheath handle with high-fidelity molded parts and proven functionality that will lend credibility to your prototype with the look of a finished product.

Order Online or go semicustom

You can leverage the Versatility handle platform in two ways:

  • Order a Versatility handle kit from our Online Store and add components to build your own device prototype
    • New Versatility Mini handle now available!
  • Work with Vention to create a semicustom device prototype using the Versatility handle and a shaft built to your specifications
