  • Publication number: 20210228292
    Abstract: A surgical system includes: (1) an imaging device configured to acquire imaging data of a surgical site; (2) a surgical manipulator configured to hold a surgical tool; and (3) a controller connected to the imaging device and the surgical manipulator, wherein the controller is configured to receive the imaging data from the imaging device and derive, from the imaging data, an insertion trajectory for the surgical tool through an incision at the surgical site.

  • Publication number: 20210000566
    Abstract: A docking system for intraocular surgery that is configured to simultaneously: (1) physically stabilize a position and an orientation of an eye during intraocular surgical procedures; (2) preserve an unobstructed path for optical instruments; (3) provide access to the eye that allows for tool movement; (4) maintain eyeball hydration and improve the scan quality of an imaging system, such as an OCT system or a surgical microscope and may maintain or control an intraocular pressure of the eye to a stable, desired level during surgical procedures.

  • Patent number: 7969914
    Abstract: A method for creating an ad-hoc network that assembles a MANET inductively with no need for any node to request any information, needing only to hear information from an ad-hoc group of at least one node, to select its uplink relay node from the group. The resulting tree-structure network efficiently communicates information upstream to a root node and to all intermediate relay nodes. Downstream communication is enabled by having nodes remember node addresses of information packets arriving from respective downstream nodes.
