Title
(EN) AUTOMATIC ULTRASONIC ENERGY ACTIVATION CIRCUIT DESIGN FOR MODULAR SURGICAL SYSTEMS
(FR) CONCEPTION DE CIRCUIT D'ACTIVATION PAR ÉNERGIE ULTRASONORE AUTOMATIQUE POUR SYSTÈMES CHIRURGICAUX MODULAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
Aspects of the present disclosure are presented for a circuit design that provides automatic ultrasonic energy activation for a modular surgical system. In some aspects, a control circuit in an ultrasonic surgical instrument may be connected to a modular energy system that allows therapeutic energy to pass from a generator to the ultrasonic surgical instrument after automatically activating the ultrasonic functionality based on some threshold criterion being satisfied. In some aspects, the ultrasonic instrument may include a capacitive touch sensor (17620) that sends a signal to automatically activate the therapeutic ultrasonic energy when the touch sensor contacts appropriate tissue.

Selon certains aspects, la présente invention concerne une conception de circuit qui fournit une activation par énergie ultrasonore automatique pour un système chirurgical modulaire. Selon certains aspects, un circuit de commande dans un instrument chirurgical ultrasonore peut être connecté à un système d'énergie modulaire qui permet à une énergie thérapeutique de passer d'un générateur à l'instrument chirurgical ultrasonore après activation automatique de la fonctionnalité ultrasonore sur la base de la satisfaction d'un certain critère de seuil. Selon certains aspects, l'instrument ultrasonore peut comprendre un capteur tactile capacitif (17620) qui envoie un signal pour activer automatiquement l'énergie ultrasonore thérapeutique lorsque le capteur tactile entre en contact avec un tissu approprié.
