Design Paradigms

Modular Systems

combine independently designed subsystems or modules to form a functioning, unitary product.

Integrated Systems

are designed as a single structure with one set of product functions.

Existing Catheter Paradigm: Minimally invasive surgical catheters are only designed as integrated systems


The Covellus Modular System is simple. 

It enables physicians to to create catheter devices by combining two independent modules at the distal end...

  • At the time of the procedure

  • In response to evolving needs
