Title (EN) CARRYING PLATFORM FOR MOVING A DEVICE WITHIN A CONDUIT
(FR) PLATE-FORME DE TRANSPORT POUR DÉPLACER UN DISPOSITIF DANS UN CONDUIT
Abstract:
(EN) A carrying platform for moving a device within a lumen, comprising a plurality of clampers configured to releasably engage the lumen for immobilizing the carrying platform relative to the lumen, and a device engagement mechanism configured to releasably engage the device. The device is preferably a catheter or an endoscope, and the lumen is preferably a biological lumen. The clampers each comprise an inflatable balloon or arms configured to engage the lumen. The device engagement mechanism comprises at least a set of wheels, or grippers each comprise a sleeve made of a shape memory material, a sleeve actuated by wire to grip the elongate device, or a balloon configured to grip the device when inflated. The forward and backward locomotion of the carrying platform through a lumen is carried out by a sequential inflation and deflation of inflatable balloons and an alternate engagement of a front gripper and a rear gripper to the device.
(FR) L'invention concerne une plate-forme de transport, pour déplacer un dispositif dans une lumière, qui comporte une pluralité d'éléments de serrage configurés pour mettre en prise amovible la lumière afin d'immobiliser la plate-forme de transport par rapport à la lumière, et un mécanisme de mise en prise de dispositif configuré pour mettre en prise amovible le dispositif. Le dispositif est de préférence un cathéter ou un endoscope, la lumière étant de préférence une lumière biologique. Les éléments de serrage comportent chacun un ballonnet gonflable ou des bras configurés pour mettre en prise la lumière. Le mécanisme de mise en prise de dispositif comporte au moins un ensemble de roues ou d'éléments de préhension, comprenant chacun un manchon fait d'un matériau à mémoire de forme, un manchon actionné par câble pour saisir le dispositif allongé ou un ballonnet configuré pour saisir le dispositif lorsqu'il est gonflé. Le déplacement vers l'avant et vers l'arrière de la plate-forme de transport à travers une lumière est exécuté par gonflage et dégonflage séquentiels de ballonnets gonflables, et par une mise en prise alternée d'un élément de préhension avant et d'un élément de préhension arrière avec le dispositif.
