|20140058398||Surgical Instrument Used in Artificial Knee Joint Replacement Surgery - A surgical instrument including a pre-cut trial mounted on a pre-cut line which is cut shallower than a genuine-cut line. The pre-cut trial is modeled after the genuine implant which is mounted on resected surfaces formed by performing genuine-cutting and comprised of an end resected surface, posterior and anterior resected surfaces, and posterior and anterior chamfer-resected surfaces on the distal end of a femur, and the pre-cut trial is mounted on the pre-cut line, thus observing the extended and flexed positions of the femur and the state of flexion thereof so as to make judgment if the genuine implant is appropriate.||02-27-2014|
|20130184714||Bone Resection Jig Used in Artificial Knee Joint Replacement Surgery - A bone resection jig that can make ligament tension equal at extension and flexion positions without any actual measurements when resecting femur and tibia during artificial knee joint replacement surgery. The bone resection jig used in artificial knee joint replacement surgery includes a spacer block (||07-18-2013|
|20120064288||SHOCK ABSORBING STRUCTURE AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURING THE SAME - A shock absorbing structure having a high shock absorption characteristic is provided. The shock absorbing structure includes a solidified portion and a sintered portion. The solidified portion is formed by dissolving and solidifying a plurality of inorganic powder particles. The sintered portion is formed by sintering a plurality of the inorganic powder particles. The sintered portion is connected to the solidified portion. The shock absorbing structure is a composite structure including the solidified portion and the sintered portion and therefore has a high shock absorption characteristic.||03-15-2012|
|20110306985||Surgical Assistance System - A surgical assistance system for operating on biological tissue using a surgical tool attached to an arm of an automatically-controlled surgical instrument so that an optimal feed rate of the tool is calculated and outputted to the surgical instrument, the system including: a device for storing and voxelizing medical image data obtained from a biological tissue subject to surgery; a device for setting an operative location based on the shape of the biological tissue; a device for calculating a tool path along which the tool travels to perform surgery at an operative location; a device for determining the region of interference between the tool and the voxels; a device for determining the hardness of the biological tissue in the interference region; a device for calculating an optimal tool feed rate corresponding to the hardness; and a device for outputting the feed rate obtained by the calculations to the surgical instrument.||12-15-2011|
