  • Publication number: 20210128253
    Abstract: A method of operating a robotic surgical system includes monitoring a force applied at a surgical instrument attached to a robotic arm, comparing the force to a force threshold for a surgical procedure, providing a signal in response to the force being outside the force threshold, monitoring, using a reference array attached to a patient, a bone movement caused while the surgical instrument interacts with the patient, and adjusting control of the robotic arm based on the bone movement.

  • Publication number: 20210128258
    Abstract: A method of generating resection data for use in planning an arthroplasty procedure on a patient bone covered at least partially in cartilage includes receiving a three-dimensional patient bone model comprising a bone model surface, and correlated with a position and orientation of the patient bone via a navigation system. The method further includes identifying a target region on the bone model surface of the model for intra-operative registration, and receiving location data for a first plurality of points based on the intra-operative registration of the cartilage on the patient bone in locations corresponding to points within the target region on the bone model surface. The method further includes determining resection depth based at least in part on the location data for the first plurality of points; and generating resection data using the resection depth, the resection data configured to be utilized by the navigation system during the arthroplasty procedure.
