Title (EN) ERGONOMIC TUBING ATTACHMENT FOR MEDICAL APPARATUS
(FR) ACCESSOIRE DE TUBE ERGONOMIQUE POUR APPAREIL MÉDICAL
Abstract:
(EN) An ergonomic attachment system for connecting an irrigation tube or an aspiration tube to a surgical handpiece that reduces surgeon wrist fatigue due to tubing twist. The tube is connected to the handpiece through a swivel joint which allows the tube to rotate circumferentially with respect to the handpiece and self-adjust to a neutral position to relieve the twist.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système de fixation ergonomique pour raccorder un tube d'irrigation ou un tube d'aspiration à une pièce à main chirurgicale qui réduit la fatigue du poignet du chirurgien due à une torsion du tube. Le tube est raccordé à la pièce à main par l'intermédiaire d'une articulation pivotante qui permet au tube de tourner de manière circonférentielle par rapport à la pièce à main et de se régler automatiquement en position neutre pour soulager la torsion.
