  • Patent number: 12004826
    Abstract: A system, e.g., a computer-aided medical system, includes a first link, a second link, a joint, and a dual brake assembly. The first link has a first end portion and a second end portion. The second link has a first end portion and a second end portion. The joint is connected to the second end portion of the first link and to the first end portion of the second link. The dual brake assembly is coupled to the first link and to the second link. The dual brake assembly includes a first brake and a second brake. Braking provided by the dual brake assembly reduces relative motion between the first and second links.

  • Publication number: 20240111370
    Abstract: Techniques for motion mode management include a computer-assisted device having an input control, a repositionable structure, and a controller coupled to the input control and the repositionable structure. The controller is configured to detect motion of the input control for teleoperating the repositionable structure and in response to determining that the motion of the input control includes a component of motion used to change a mode of operation of the computer-assisted device, temporarily disable changes in the mode of operation of the computer-assisted device based on motion of the input control.

  • Publication number: 20230355317
    Abstract: A system for confirming registration of a bone involved in a joint replacement procedure is provided. The system includes a three-dimensional (3-D) bone model of the bone registered to a bone location, a visible light camera, and a display. The visible light camera captures images of the bone in the camera’s field-of-view (FOV). The display is configured to display the captured images of the FOV and an image of the 3-D bone model, where the displayed location of the image of the 3-D bone model corresponds to the location of the 3-D bone model registered to the bone location. The registration may be confirmed if the displayed location of the image of the bone as captured by the visible light camera corresponds to the displayed location of the 3-D bone model.

  • Patent number: 11717353
    Abstract: A process for confirming registration of bones involved in a joint replacement procedure is provided that includes a three dimensional (3-D) models of the bones being generated. The bones are tracked with a tracking device attached to each of the bones to allow 6-degrees of freedom (DOF) tracking during the joint replacement procedure. The 3-D models to the bones are registered and the bones having the tracking device are moved. A corresponding motion in the 3-D models with the moving of the bones is then observed. The registration of the 3-D models to the bone when the observations of the 3-D models move in correspondence with the actual bones is then confirmed or an alarm when an algorithm detects the 3-D bone models move unexpectedly during the movement of the bones. A system for confirming registration of bones involved in the joint replacement procedure is also provided.

  • Patent number: 11625107
    Abstract: Systems and methods for motion mode management include a computer-assisted device having an input control, a repositionable structure, and a controller coupled to the input control and the repositionable structure. The controller is configured to detect movement of the input control, control movement of the repositionable structure based on the movement of the input control, determine whether the movement of the input control is likely to include one or more components of a mode switching movement of the input control, and in response to determining that the movement of the input control is likely to include one or more components of the mode switching movement, temporarily disable mode switching in response to movement of the input control. The mode switching movement changes a mode of operation for the device. In some embodiments, the temporarily disabling prevents changing the mode of operation when the movement is a mode switching movement.

  • Publication number: 20220211460
    Abstract: Systems and methods for integrated motion with an imaging device include a device having a first manipulator, a second manipulator, and a controller coupled to the first and second manipulators. When the device is in an imaging device motion mode, the controller is configured to determine whether a first portion of an instrument is located within a viewing region of an image captured by an imaging device; in response to determining that the first portion of the instrument is located within the viewing region, command a manipulator supporting the instrument to keep a position of a second portion of the instrument fixed relative to the imaging device as the imaging device moves; and in response to determining that the first portion is not within the viewing region, command the manipulator to keep the position of the second portion fixed relative to the workspace as the imaging device moves.

  • Publication number: 20220184823
    Abstract: A protective drape for a robotic arm is provided. The protective drape may be used with robotic arm that are required to operate in varied environments that illustratively include industrial applications, a sterile surgical suite for patient care, and a clean room for manufacturing sensitive electronic components. In each of these applications, there is a need to prevent contaminants from infiltrating from the environment to the robot and affecting operation of the robot itself or the robotic system, as well to prevent contaminants from the robot from infecting a patient or contaminating an assembly or process product.

  • Publication number: 20220142717
    Abstract: An optical tracking system includes at least one tracking array for generating and optically transmitting data between 1 and 2,000 MB/s. At least one tracker for optically receiving the optically transmitted data between 1 and 2,000 MB/s is also provided. The tracking system is used not only for tracking objects and sending tracking information quickly but also providing the user or other components in an operating room with additional data relevant to an external device such as a computer assisted device. Orthopedic surgical procedures such as total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are performed more efficiently and with better result with the optical tracking system.

  • Publication number: 20220117680
    Abstract: Systems and methods for automated docking include a linkage, a docking arm located near a distal end of the linkage, a docking support mechanism, and one or more processors. The one or more processors are configured to detect a docking port using the docking support mechanism and actuate the linkage based on the detection to align the docking arm with the docking port, move the docking arm toward the docking port, and dock the docking arm to the docking port. In some embodiments, to actuate the linkage based on the detection, the one or more processors are configured to align the docking arm with an alignment point of the docking port, align an alignment axis of the docking arm with an alignment axis of the docking port, rotationally align the docking arm with the docking port, and reduce a relative distance between the docking arm and the docking port.
