Title (EN) DRIVE FORCE CONTROL IN MEDICAL INSTRUMENT PROVIDING POSITION MEASUREMENTS
(FR) COMMANDE DE FORCE MOTRICE DANS UN INSTRUMENT MÉDICAL PROCURANT DES MESURES DE POSITION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Control systems and methods for a remote joint use position measurements to determine and control the force that an actuator applies to the joint through a linkage. The use of force and feedback allows control of a medical instrument having a linkage that provides non-negligible compliance between the joint and a proximal actuator and particularly allows precise instrument operation even when the position of the distal joint cannot be directly related to the proximal motor position.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de commande destinés à une articulation à distance, qui utilisent des mesures de position pour déterminer et commander la force qu'un organe de commande applique à l'articulation par un raccordement. L'utilisation de la force et de la rétroaction permet de commander un instrument médical possédant un raccordement qui procure une conformité non négligeable entre l'articulation et un actionneur proximal, et permet en particulier un maniement d'instrument précis même lorsque la position de l'articulation distale ne peut pas être directement reliée à la position motrice proximale.
