Title: ENERGY TREATMENT TOOL, CONTROL DEVICE, AND TREATMENT SYSTEM
Abstract:
In the present invention, an end effector grips a subject to be treated between a pair of gripping pieces, and an energy output source applies treatment energy to the gripped subject to be treated by outputting electrical energy. A processor switches the drive state of an actuator on the basis that the subject to be treated is in a predetermined state when the electrical energy is being output from the energy output source. Thus, the end effector changes from a first gripping state to a second gripping state in which the amount of gripping force and the gripping pressure between the pair of gripping pieces are different from the first gripping state.
