The machine is servo driven and equipped with a flat belt infeed conveyor and box motion scaling
jaws that follow the film for enhanced dwell time and hermetic seal quality.
The devices also have motion scaling
, "so the very forced movement of the surgeon's hand can become translated into a very fine motion at the incident tip," he explained.
The electronic motion scaling
eliminates physiologic tremor.
Additionally, the system is expected to enhance surgical precision with motion scaling
and a feature designed to eliminate hand tremors.
Further refinement of this patent includes the concepts of motion scaling
, hand-tremor elimination and a method of system activation that optimizes surgeon ergonomics.
In contrast, robotic surgery offers greater precision and accuracy because of improved three-dimensional visualization, enhanced dexterity with more degrees of freedom (in-out, up-down, right-left, pitchyaw, internal pitch-internal yaw), tremor filtration, motion scaling
from 1:1 to 10:1, and quantitative data about the surgery.
Further refinements of this patent include the concepts of motion scaling
, hand-tremor elimination, and a method of system activation that allows optimal surgeon ergonomics while performing coronary suturing.
An example of motion scaling
is where a one inch movement of the surgeon's hand is scaled and translated to a 1/10 inch movement at the robotic instrument tip.
