Prelude IDeal Sheath Introducer - Merit Medical

THINNER. STRONGER. IDEAL™.

Prelude IDeal is a hydrophilic access sheath designed for radial artery access from the wrist or the hand. Merit developed a proprietary flat-wire braiding technology that was able to make the sheath’s inner wall 13% thinner than the competition, which kept the OD the same yet made the ID larger. The wall was also stronger, increasing kink resistance by 23% as compared to the competitor, and increasing compression resistance by 124%. The increase in kink and compression resistance makes a noticeable difference in the hands of interventionalists, and has become the tool of choice for distal radial access.
