Title: SINGLE-USE INSTRUMENT TIP FOR CUSTOMIZED REUSABLE HANDLES
Abstract:
A single-use instrument tip may include a transitory element (100), a blank (250), a hypodermic tube (240), and a fixation mechanism (230). The blank (250) may be disposed in the hypodermic tube (240) and the transitory element (100). A reusable handle may include a handle base (450), a threaded rod (455), an instrument tip housing (465), and an actuation handle (480). The actuation handle (480) may be manufactured to have one or more properties derived from data collected from a particular surgeon. The actuation handle (480) may include one or more actuation limbs (485). The threaded rod (455) may be disposed in the handle base (450), the actuation handle (480), and the instrument tip housing (465). The fixation mechanism (230) may be configured to temporarily fix a portion of the single-use instrument tip in the instrument housing. A compression of at least on actuation limb (485) may be configured to extend the hypodermic tube (240) relative to the blank (250).
