Project Description: 
Steerable catheters and sheaths for endovascular interventions are commonly used in the diagnosis and treatment of electrophysiological cardiac disorders and are finding increasing applications in structural heart repair. As the range of clinical procedures increases, so does the demand for accurate and flexible tip steering. Conventional steerable tools have a fixed bending region, but in many cases it is desirable to be able to choose the bending region or even to have 2 independently controlled bending regions to enable control of the tip angle and tip location independently. This Ph. D. work will consist of design, modeling, fabrication, and evaluation of disposable snake robot mechanisms for endovascular tools.
