Project Description

A surgical bone cutter for video assisted thoracoscopic surgery

A new surgical bone cutter enabling thoracoscopic removal of bone tissue. This is the first saw designed to be used during VATS. The saw head can be both rotated and angled allowing the surgeon to reach every rib in the thoracic without having to divide extrathoracal musculature and expand intercostal space with a retractor. Shear is developed with focus on ease of use and to help the surgent do procedures in a more effective and gentle way.
