Title (EN) AN IMPACTOR
(FR) IMPACTEUR
Abstract:
(EN) The invention provides an impactor for transmitting an assembly force to a component of an orthopaedic implant. The impactor has first and second telescoping parts which are biased apart by means of a main spring. The main spring is compressed when an assembly force is applied to the parts. An indicator is latched against movement until it is released when the extent of the compression of the main spring by the application of an assembly force exceeds a threshold. The indicator then moves to provide the user with an indication that a minimum assembly force has been applied.
(FR) L'invention concerne un impacteur destiné à transmettre une force d'assemblage à un composant d'un implant orthopédique. L'impacteur comporte des première et seconde pièces télescopiques qui sont écartées l'une de l'autre au moyen d'un ressort principal. Le ressort principal est comprimé lorsqu'une force d'assemblage est appliquée aux pièces. Un indicateur est verrouillé contre le mouvement jusqu'à ce qu'il soit libéré lorsque l'étendue de la compression du ressort principal par l'application d'une force d'assemblage dépasse un seuil. L'indicateur se déplace ensuite pour donner à l'utilisateur une indication qu'une force d'assemblage minimum a été appliquée.
