Title
(EN) ALIGNMENT AND ATTACHMENT SYSTEMS FOR MEDICAL INSTRUMENTS
(FR) SYSTÈMES D'ALIGNEMENT ET DE FIXATION POUR INSTRUMENTS MÉDICAUX
Abstract
(EN)
A medical instrument can include alignment and attachment mechanisms for aligning and attaching the medical instrument to another device, such as an adapter on an instrument drive mechanism. For example, a medical system can include a medical instrument having an instrument handle and an elongated body. The system can include an alignment mechanism configured to provide rotational alignment between the medical instrument and an adapter. The system can also include an attachment mechanism configured to secure the medical instrument to the adapter. The attachment mechanism can include at least three locking elements positioned circumferentially about the axis.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un instrument médical qui peut comprendre des mécanismes d'alignement et de fixation pour aligner l'instrument médical sur un autre dispositif et le fixer à celui-ci, tel qu'un adaptateur sur un mécanisme d'entraînement d'instrument. Par exemple, un système médical peut comprendre un instrument médical ayant un manche d'instrument et un corps allongé. Le système peut comprendre un mécanisme d'alignement conçu pour fournir un alignement rotatif entre l'instrument médical et un adaptateur. Le système peut également comprendre un mécanisme de fixation conçu pour fixer l'instrument médical à l'adaptateur. Le mécanisme de fixation peut comprendre au moins trois éléments de verrouillage positionnés de manière circonférentielle autour de l'axe.
