Claims

1. A holding apparatus for holding a surgical mechatronic assistance system or a surgical instrument, the holding apparatus comprising:
a proximal end for attaching the holding apparatus to a base and a distal end for receiving an add-on device;
at least one first and one second arm segment, wherein the first arm segment is connected to a first joint and the second arm segment is connected to a second joint, wherein each joint is releasable and lockable;
an operating device for releasing and/or locking the respective joint for putting the holding apparatus into a desired pose; and
a first display unit arranged on the first joint and a second display unit arranged on the second joint,
wherein the first and/or the second display unit is configured to display at least one status of the holding apparatus and/or of the add-on device that is different from the releasing and/or locking of the respective joint.
2. The holding apparatus of claim 1, wherein the first and the second display units each have at least one light source.
3. The holding apparatus of claim 2, wherein the light source is configured to emit two or more different colors.
4. The holding apparatus of claim 1, wherein the first and the second display units have at least one display for displaying the status.
5. The holding apparatus of claim 1, wherein at least one of the first and the second display units is designed as a ring around a pivot axis of the respective joint.
6. The holding apparatus of claim 5, wherein the ring is a ring of LED elements.
7. The holding apparatus of claim 1, wherein the status is movement of the holding apparatus.
8. The holding apparatus of claim 1, further comprising orientation sensors arranged in at least one of the first joint and the second joint.
9. The holding apparatus of claim 1, wherein the first and the second display units are configured to display a direction in which at least one joint is to be moved in order to move the holding apparatus from a current pose into a predefined pose.
10. The holding apparatus of claim 9, wherein the direction is displayed by flashing, rotating a pattern, varying the brightness, and/or varying the color.
11. The holding apparatus of claim 9, wherein a movement of the holding apparatus is displayed using a different color and/or a different pattern, from the one for the direction in which the at least one joint is to be moved in order to move the holding apparatus from the current pose into the predefined pose.
12. The holding apparatus of claim 11, wherein at least one of the first and the second display units is configured to display when the holding apparatus as a whole is moved without changing its pose.
13. The holding apparatus of claim 11, wherein at least one of the first and the second display units is configured to indicate movement of a joint in a locked state.
14. A holding apparatus for holding a surgical mechatronic assistance system or a surgical instrument, the holding apparatus comprising:
a proximal end for attaching the holding apparatus to a base and a distal end for receiving an add-on device;
at least one first and one second arm segment, wherein the first arm segment is connected to a first joint and the second arm segment is connected to a second joint, wherein each joint is releasable and lockable;
an operating device for releasing and/or locking the respective joint for putting the holding apparatus into a desired pose; and
a first display unit which is arranged on the first joint and a second display unit which is arranged on the second joint,
wherein the first and/or the second display unit is configured to display at least one status of the holding apparatus and/or of the add-on device, and wherein the first display unit and the second display unit are configured to emit infrared radiation.
15. The holding apparatus of claim 14, wherein the first and the second display units comprise infrared LEDs.
16. The holding apparatus of claim 14, wherein the first and the second display units are configured to display the status of the holding apparatus and/or of the add-on device by means of the infrared radiation.
17. The holding apparatus of claim 14, wherein the first and the second display units are configured to emit infrared light when the holding apparatus moves.
18. The holding apparatus of claim 14, wherein the first and the second display units each have at least one light source configured to emit two or more different colors.
19. The holding apparatus of claim 14, wherein at least one of the first and the second display units is designed as a ring around a pivot axis of the respective joint.
20. The holding apparatus of claim 14, wherein at least one of the first and the second display units is configured to display when the holding apparatus as a whole is moved without changing its pose.
21. The holding apparatus of claim 14, wherein at least one of the first and the second display units is configured to indicate movement of a joint in a locked state.
22. A method for displaying at least one status of the holding apparatus of claim 1, said method comprising:
detecting the at least one status; and
displaying the at least one status by means of the first and/or the second display unit designed as a ring around a pivot axis of the respective joint.
23. A method for displaying at least one status of a holding apparatus or of an add-on device, said method comprising:
detecting the at least one status;
displaying the status by means of a display unit designed as a ring around a pivot axis of a respective joint; and
emitting infrared radiation by means of said display unit.
