Title
(EN) WIRELESS-ENABLED SURGICAL SUTURE NEEDLE
(FR) AIGUILLE DE SUTURE CHIRURGICALE ACTIVÉE SANS FIL
Abstract
(EN) A suture needle apparatus includes a needle body and a radio-frequency identification ("RFID") chip disposed proximate to the needle body. The RFID chip is encoded with an identifying information associated with the suture needle apparatus. The RFID chip includes an electromagnetic coupling element. A suture thread is operatively coupled to the needle body. At least one of the needle body and the suture thread is an antenna selectively electromagnetically coupled to the RFID chip and, when coupled, is configured to wirelessly communicate the identifying information responsive to radio-frequency interrogation of the suture needle apparatus. A method of providing a suture needle apparatus is also disclosed.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil d'aiguille de suture comprenant un corps d'aiguille et une puce d'identification par radiofréquence ("RFID") disposée à proximité du corps d'aiguille. La puce RFID est codée avec une information d'identification associée à l'appareil d'aiguille de suture. La puce RFID comprend un élément de couplage électromagnétique. Un fil de suture est couplé de manière fonctionnelle au corps d'aiguille. Au moins l'un du corps d'aiguille et du fil de suture est une antenne couplée de manière sélective électromagnétiquement à la puce RFID et, lorsqu'elle est couplée, est configurée pour communiquer sans fil les informations d'identification en réponse à une interrogation radiofréquence de l'appareil d'aiguille de suture. L'invention concerne également un procédé pour fournir l'appareil d'aiguille de suture.
