Title: PROTECTION OF FLEXIBLE MEMBERS
Abstract:
Methods, systems, and devices are provided for protecting a flexible member, such as a cable, tube, capillary, fiber, and other similar structures. In an exemplary embodiment, a modular device can include multiple modules that are configured to engage a flexible member. Each module can be configured to couple to a flexible member by an interference fit and to removably mate to another module. Once assembled, the modules can allow movement in a particular direction to allow some flexion of a flexible member extending therethrough.
