Abstract
(EN)
Robotic surgical tools, systems, and methods for preparing for, and performing robotic surgery include a memory (126) mounted on the tool (54). The memory (126) can perform a number of functions when the tool (54) is loaded on the tool manipulator (58). First, the memory can provide a signal verifying that the tool (54) is compatible with that particular robotic system. Secondly, the tool memory (126) may identify the tool-type to the robotic system so that the robotic system can reconfigure its programming. Thirdly, the memory (126) of the tool (54) may indicate tool specific information, including measured calibration offsets indicating misalignment of the tool drive system, tool life data, or the like. This information may be stored in a read only memory (ROM), or in a nonvolatile memory which can be written to only a single time. The invention further provides improved engagement structures for coupling robotic surgical tools with manipulator structures.

(FR)
L'invention concerne des outils robotisés de chirurgie, des systèmes, ainsi que des procédés de préparation et de mise en oeuvre d'une chirurgie robotisée comprenant une mémoire (126) montée sur l'outil (54). La mémoire (126) peut exécuter plusieurs fonctions lorsque l'outil (54) est chargé sur le manipulateur d'outil (58). Premièrement, la mémoire peut émettre un signal qui permet de vérifier la compatibilité de l'outil (54) avec le système robotisé particulier. Deuxièmement, la mémoire de l'outil (126) peut identifier le type d'outil par rapport au système robotisé, ce dernier pouvant alors reconfigurer son programme. Troisièmement, la mémoire (126) de l'outil (54) peut indiquer l'information spécifique à l'outil, y compris les décalages d'étalonnage révélant un désalignement du système d'entraînement de l'outil, les données de vie de l'outil, ou autre. Cette information peut être mémorisée dans une mémoire morte (ROM), ou dans une mémoire non volatile inscriptible une seule fois. L'invention concerne en outre des structures de mise en prise améliorées pour coupler des outils robotisés de chirurgie avec les structures de manipulateur.
