REACT FEATURES

COIL NAVIGABILITY

The coil technology (one continuous coil through entire catheter length) offers navigability1,2 past the ophthalmic artery and M1 segment.

Kink Resistance1,2

"Nitinol wires can be bent 10x more than stainless-steel wires without permanent deformation."3

BRAID PUSHABILITY

The braid technology offers optimal pushability1,2 allowing for greater support in tortuous anatomy and elongated vessels.

Proven Compatibility 

React is compatible with the Solitaire™ X revascularization device and the Riptide™ aspiration system.4 It's also been tested for reliable performance for up to 3 passes without damage.5

NITINOL DURABILITY

Using nitinol tip-to-tip (both coil and braid) enables the device to maintain its shape, therefore, providing durability when performing more than one pass.1,2
