Flexible magnetically guided catheters are subjected to three different forces: mechanical forces transmitted along the tubing from its proximal end, those imparted by the action of external fields acting on the magnetic portions of the catheter, and those imparted by the environment. The manner in which the interaction of these forces affects catheter propulsion and control is discussed.
