  • Publication number: 20200085593
    Abstract: A method of performing joint arthroplasty includes accessing a surface on a bone and supporting a stop with the accessed surface. The method includes positioning an instrument at least partially within the stop, the instrument having a body and a punch, the punch including a portion thereof having a shape similar to a shape of a stem of an implant, and rotating the stop with respect to the accessed surface based upon an indicia on one of the body and the stop so as to position the punch rotationally with respect to the accessed surface at a first orientation. The method further includes moving the body axially with respect to the stop to form a cavity in the bone with the punch at the first rotational orientation, the formed cavity having a shape similar to the stem of the implant, and implanting the stem of the implant into the cavity.

  • Patent number: 10456062
    Abstract: A method for aligning a manipulable sensor assembly includes determination of a replica surface, which represents a field of view of a manipulable sensor assembly associated with an object when the object is located in a desired position and oriented at a desired orientation. Electromagnetic radiation and/or sound reflected from a surface of the region of interest is detected to provide a surface map of the region of interest, which is compared to the replica surface to determine a rotation and/or a translation for the manipulable sensor assembly to bring the surface map into alignment with the replica surface. The position and/or the orientation of the object are altered. The detection of reflected electromagnetic radiation or sound, comparison of the surfaces, and alteration of the position and orientation of the object are repeated until the surface map is in alignment with the replica surface.
