Semiautomatic surgical saw for heart, chest and brain operations

Currently under development is a semiautomatic, handheld surgical saw for cutting bone tissue safely in neuro- and cardio-thoracic surgery. The surgeon and the “intelligent instrument” work together synergetically. While the surgeon guides the instrument on the bone surface and performs high-level process control, the incision depth is adjusted completely automatically with the help of computer tomography (CT), ultrasound, or optical sensors, and dSPACE real-time hardware.
