  • Publication number: 20230380669
    Abstract: A motorized introducer apparatus for translating an elongate shaft of an endoscope relative to a patient may include a body, a motor fixedly attached to the body, a drive gear coupled to the motor, a drive wheel coupled to the drive gear, and a support wheel positioned adjacent the drive wheel. The elongate shaft of the endoscope is disposable between the drive wheel and the support wheel at an engagement location such that the elongate shaft is configured to selectively move longitudinally along an axis of movement. A surgical system may include the motorized introducer apparatus and a support frame attachable to a surgical bed. The motorized introducer apparatus may be secured to the support frame.

  • Publication number: 20230380668
    Abstract: An attachment mechanism for using an endoscope with a surgical robot may include a fixture configured to receive a handle of the endoscope such that a longitudinal axis of the handle is oriented parallel with a longitudinal axis of the fixture and an elongate shaft of the endoscope extends distally away from the fixture, and a mounting structure secured to the fixture. The mounting structure is configured to attach the fixture to the surgical robot. The fixture includes a retaining mechanism configured to releasably secure the handle within the fixture. The fixture includes a first motor operably coupled to a first drive mechanism, the first drive mechanism being configured to engage the handle of the endoscope to operate a deflection mechanism of the endoscope.

  • Publication number: 20230380670
    Abstract: A surgical system for use with a surgical robot may include an endoscope including a handle and an elongate shaft extending distally from the handle, an attachment mechanism including a fixture configured to receive the handle of the endoscope and a mounting structure configured to attach the fixture to the surgical robot, a motorized introducer apparatus spaced apart from the surgical robot and configured to translate the elongate shaft of the endoscope relative to a patient, and an input device configured to be operated using one hand only. The input device may include a plurality of tactile buttons operable using the one hand, and a joystick configured for operation by a thumb of the one hand. The input device may include a plurality of motion sensors configured to determine position and orientation of the input device in space.

  • Publication number: 20230372034
    Abstract: A steerable medical device includes a handle and an elongate shaft extending distally from the handle to a distal tip. A motor control assembly including a motor control housing is configured to detachably interface with the handle. The motor control assembly includes a first drive assembly and a second drive assembly disposed within the motor control housing. The motor control assembly includes an input device and a controller that is operably coupled with the first drive assembly, the second drive assembly and the input device. The controller is configured to control operation of the first drive assembly and/or the second drive assembly in order to move the distal tip, receive one or more user inputs from a user via the input device, and to modify operation of the first drive assembly and/or the second drive assembly in accordance with the received one or more inputs.
