Title: AUTOMATED FORCEPS EXPANSION SYSTEM
Abstract:
Tools and methods of use for an automated forceps expansion system for graft implantation in the premade skin incision. The automated system for graft implantation, has a tubular body, with a forceps mounted on top of the tubular body. The forceps is operatively associated to a spring, controlling the movement of forceps arms. The spring is coupled to a plunger. The plunger is disposed axially within the tubular body. The plunger on the distal end of the tubular body is operatively associated with a tube. The tube is used to pass pneumatic pressure to the plunger. This pneumatic pressure is created by a compressor unit attached to the tube. The pneumatic pressure once created, releases air in the tube. The tube attached to plunger moves the plunger axially forward causing compression of the spring and thus a positive pneumatic pressure creation causes the forceps to open. When the pneumatic pressure is stopped, the spring causes, negative pneumatic pressure and starts decompressing, this results in the forceps to return to the original closed state.
