HUBER+SUHNER develops all equipment together with the customer or supplies individual components for the applicator (also known as the probe or disposable element). Thanks to its long experience in microwave technology, HUBER+SUHNER is capable of manufacturing thin cables which result in extremely low losses while also allowing cooling in or around the cable using a variety of media. The use of special connector solutions can also satisfy the demand for flexibility while maintaining the form stability of the supply cable to the antenna. This makes the applicator simple and highly ergonomic to handle.
This probe consists of a rigid needle with integral microwave antenna which is inserted into the the body up to the diseased tissue. The critical requirements for the design of this applicator are a small diameter, mechanical strength and excellent cooling
A flexible cable on this applicator leads to the integral microwave antenna tip which allows the antenna to be inserted through a catheter to the required area of the body. In addition to a small diameter and the correct balance between flexibility and rigidity, excellent cooling is also required. The disposable is designed for single use.
Applicator for the body surface
These applicators are used for medical treatments on the surface of the body (for example for treating hyperhidrosis). Each applicator is used multiple times and includes an antenna which is connected directly to the generator using flexible, low-attenuation cables.
Hybrid cable assemblies
In its hybrid cables, HUBER+SUHNER combines flexible microwave cables with various data and cooling cables. These solutions are generally designed and enhanced for specific customer applications.
In addition to producing the various components, HUBER+SUHNER has the expertise required to manufacture the entire applicator and can provide the customer with support in the development process from the prototype phase to mass production.
