Title: INPUT DEVICE HANDLE FOR ROBOTIC SURGICAL SYSTEMS CAPABLE OF LARGE ROTATIONS ABOUT A ROLL AXIS
Abstract:
An input device handle for controlling a robotic system includes a body and a cylinder. The body defines an opening that rotatably receives the cylinder. The cylinder defines a roll axis such that rotation of the cylinder relative to the body about the roll axis is configured to rotate a tool of a robot about a first axis defined by the tool.
