The Intellitorq device is a manual driver that can indicate a torque value using LED lights and haptic feedback.
“This breakthrough in handheld medical devices represents Gauthier’s long-standing commitment to providing repeatability, reliability and accuracy to medical device OEMs,” Michael T. Gauthier, president of Gauthier Biomedical, said. “Torque devices and final-tightening needs have long been a source of frustration for quality, regulatory and engineering departments. This new product category of smart instrumentation creates a major market disruption the likes of which we haven’t seen in quite some time. It will improve patient safety, exponentially drive value and eliminate costly recalibration programs.”
