Title (EN) MICROSURGICAL INSTRUMENT
(FR) INSTRUMENT MICROCHIRURGICAL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An improved handle for a microsurgical instrument, as well as microsurgical instruments using the handle, are disclosed. The handle includes a grasping member for grasping the instrument between an index finger and a middle finger of a human hand. The handle also includes an actuating member rotationally coupled to the instrument and for operatively engaging a microsurgical tool. The actuating member has a geometry for mating with a human thumb. The handle allows a human to actuate the microsurgical tool by moving the actuating member with the thumb.
(FR)L'invention concerne un manche amélioré destiné à un instrument microchirurgical, de même que des instruments microchirurgicaux mettant en oeuvre un tel manche. Ce manche comporte un élément de saisie permettant de saisir l'instrument entre l'index et le majeur de la main, et il comporte également un élément de commande, couplé de manière pivotante sur l'instrument et conçu pour entrer en prise de manière opérante avec un outil microchirurgical. Cet élément de commande possède une géométrie destinée à épouser le pouce de la main. Ce manche permet à une personne d'actionner l'outil microchirurgical par déplacement de l'élément de commande à l'aide du pouce.
