Title (EN) INDICATOR FOR TOOL STATE COMMUNICATION IN MULTI-ARM TELESURGERY
(FR) INDICATEUR POUR COMMUNICATION D'ETAT D'OUTIL EN TELECHIRURGIE ROBOTIQUE MULTIBRAS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Medical and/or robotic devices, systems and methods can provide an indicator (20) associated with each manipulator assembly (8,10) of a multi-arm telerobotic or telesurgical system. The exemplary indicator comprises a multi-color light emitting diode (LED) (56) mounted to a manipulator moving an associated surgical instrument (28) , allowing the indicator to display any of a wide variety of signals. The invention may provide an additional user interface to facilitate communications between the telesurgical system and/or members (A, O) of a telesurgical team.
(FR)Selon l'invention, des dispositifs, des systèmes, des procédés médicaux et/ou robotiques peuvent faire appel à un indicateur associé à chaque ensemble manipulateur d'un système télérobotique ou téléchirurgical multibras. L'indicateur selon l'invention comprend une diode électroluminescente multicolore (DEL) montée sur un manipulateur déplaçant un instrument chirurgical associé, permettant à l'indicateur d'afficher un signal quelconque d'une large variété de signaux. L'invention peut permettre d'obtenir une interface utilisateur supplémentaire afin de faciliter les communications entre le système téléchirurgical et/ou des membres d'une équipe téléchirurgicale.
