Orthopedic Tool for Extracting a Long Stem Prosthesis
Background:Total shoulder replacements are the third most common orthopedic procedure in Canada, following hip and knee arthroplasty. Shoulder surgery provides an effective and durable solution to treat severe pain due to osteoarthritis, torn rotator cuffs, as well as fractures of the humeral head. In order to restore normal shoulder motion, the im...
Touch Point Finger Pad Digitizer
BackgroundSignificant advancements have been made in non-clinical surgical training simulations - virtual reality, robotics and computer simulations have enabled a wide range of skills to be practiced and tested. However, there is still significant interest in finding ways to monitor learning progress and confirm proficiency.A surgical trainee has ...
A Magneto-Rheological-Based Actuation System
Background:With current means of actuation, very few options exist that provide multiple degrees of freedom (DOF) and move independently without the addition of multiple motors. For instance, conventional means of safely actuating robotic devices involve the use of specially modified servo motors at each joint to control motion. In most application...
A Magneto-Rheological-Based Clutch System for Robots
Background:The new frontier in the development of industrial automation lies in the area of small and medium enterprises where robots will be required to work in close proximity to human counterparts. Conventional means of safely actuating robotic devices involve the use of specially modified servo motors at each joint to control motion, in conjunc...
