This cover is intended to provide a protective barrier for the AcuNav catheter connector, handle and cable. Accordion-folded, the cover applies easily onto the connector and extends the length of the handle and cable. The cover serves a dual purpose, protecting the integrity of the equipment and reducing the risks of cross-contamination. Each cover is individually packaged with tape strip and clips to secure the cover into position. Not made with natural rubber latex.
