Title
(EN) ULTRASOUND PROBE HANDLE
(FR) POIGNÉE DE SONDE À ULTRASONS
Abstract
(EN)
System, devices, and methods for coupling portions of a medical device handle are provided. A male portion (202) and a female portion (204) of the handle may be coupled together using a sealant (244) such as room temperature vulcanized silicone rubber (RTV) using in conjunction with ultrasonic welding. The RTV may be applied to one of the male or female portions and the portions may be joined using a tongue (215) and groove (2259 connection, displacing the RTV from the weld site. The RTV helps to seal the bondline (206) after ultrasonic welding.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système, des dispositifs et des procédés d'accouplement de parties d'une poignée de dispositif médical. Une partie mâle (202) et une partie femelle (204) de la poignée peuvent être accouplées l'une à l'autre à l'aide d'un produit de scellement (244) tel qu'un caoutchouc de silicone vulcanisé à température ambiante (RTV) utilisé conjointement avec un soudage par ultrasons. Le RTV peut être appliqué à la partie mâle ou la partie femelle et les parties peuvent être jointes par liaison entre une languette (215) et une rainure (2259), déplaçant le RTV hors du site de soudure. Le RTV facilite le scellement de la ligne de liaison (206) après le soudage par ultrasons.
