How Servo Drives Play A Part In Medical Procedures


How Servo Drives Play A Part In Medical Procedures

Robotic surgery, otherwise known as robot-assisted surgery, has grown rapidly because it allows surgeons to perform complex procedures with greater precision and control than conventional surgical techniques. For the patient, it is minimally invasive, less painful, and recovery is much quicker. ESI Motion is a global leader in developing high-powered motor controllers to featherweight servo drive modules that play a critical role in medical procedures.

How Servo Drives Help Doctors and Patients

Robotic surgical systems use a camera and surgical instruments that are attached to mechanical arms. The surgeon can control the arms from a computer console which provides high-definition and magnified images giving the surgeon a much better view of the surgery site. The robot can make smaller incisions and utilizes smaller instruments than the surgeon would be able to use.

Robotic surgery reduces the risk and complications of surgical procedures because the incisions are smaller, and there is less blood loss than traditional surgeries. More and more patients opt for robot-assisted surgery because they experience less pain, recover more quickly, and scars are minimal.

ESI Motion has engineered leading servo drives that have helped both doctors and patients in the world of medical procedures. A servo motor and a servo drive work in tandem in robotics. A servo motor is the driver behind the robot, while the servo drive tells the motor what to do. ESI Motion’s Single Axis Mite is ideal for specialized applications, such as surgery. The module controls the speed, position, and precision, and since it is designed for single motor control, there is a significant reduction in development time and costs.

ESI Motion’s Dual Axis Atom is another precision-based product with a field-proven controller and high-efficiency wide-bandgap semiconductor-based power driver modules and offers multiple configurations. It also has options, including a selection of input voltages, output current amplitudes, and feedback devices. It comes with an industry benchmark user interface allowing the most flexible and precise system integration and control.
