  • Publication number: 20200405420
    Abstract: Provided are systems and techniques for a medical procedure. For example, the system may include one or more robotic arms, an imaging device, a master controller, a viewer configured to render one or more digital images based on image data from the imaging device, at least one computer-readable memory having stored thereon executable instructions, and one or more processors. The one or more processors may be configured to execute the instructions to cause the system to: in a first mode of operation, cause movement of at least one of the robotic arms; and in a second mode of operation, cause the viewer to display an interactive menu and a graphical overlay on the one or more digital images.

  • Patent number: 10874468
    Abstract: A robotic catheter system includes a controller with a master input device. An instrument driver is in communication with the controller and has a guide instrument interface including a plurality of guide instrument drive elements responsive to control signals generated, at least in part, by the master input device. An elongate guide instrument has a base, distal end, and a working lumen, wherein the guide instrument base is operatively coupled to the guide instrument interface. The guide instrument includes a plurality of guide instrument control elements operatively coupled to respective guide drive elements and secured to the distal end of the guide instrument. The guide instrument control elements are axially moveable relative to the guide instrument such that movement of the guide instrument distal end may be controlled by the master input device.

  • Publication number: 20200375678
    Abstract: A robotic system can include a high force instrument that amplifies input forces such that output forces are greater than input forces. The high force instrument can include an end effector. The high force instrument can further include a first pulley configured to rotate about a pulley axis and a first jaw member connected to the first pulley by a first drive pin. The high force instrument can also include a second pulley configured to rotate about the pulley axis and a second jaw member connected to the second pulley by a second drive pink. A link can provide a first pivot point about which the first jaw member can pivot and a second pivot point about which the second jaw member can pivot.
