Abstract
(EN)

A device for interfacing between a manipulator end effector and a surgical
tool having upper and
lower collar assemblies, comprising: an upper tool holder for grasping the
upper collar assembly
comprising a body with a pair of fixed arms, a gate hingedly coupled to one of
the arms, a biased
latch pivotably coupled to the other arm for securing the gate in a closed
position, and a biasing
member for pivotably biasing the latch in the closed position; and a lower
tool holder for
grasping the lower collar assembly. The upper tool holder surrounds the upper
collar assembly
when the gate is closed and exposes the upper collar assembly when the gate is
open. The gate
includes inwardly-facing spring biased stabilizers comprising a plunger, a set
screw, and a spring
biasing member for biasing the plunger to exert a stabilizing force on the
tool when the gate is
closed.
