Title
(EN) Surgical robot system
Abstract
(EN)

A robotic surgery system includes a robot assembly comprising at least one robot and an instrument assembly comprising at least one instrument that is guided by the robot assembly. The instrument assembly includes at least one instrument housing having at least one drive unit housing part containing a cavity designed to hold the drive unit. The drive unit housing part includes a seal for the sterile sealing of an insertion opening of the cavity in addition to a dynamic sterile barrier which delimits the cavity in a sterile manner and across which the drive train arrangement can be actuated. The drive unit is offset laterally in relation to a longitudinal axis of the instrument shaft towards a connection between the instrument housing and the robot assembly.
