chap 7 hard book surgical tech

articulated broken into sections by a joint (degrees of freedom)
binaural hearing the ability for humans and robots to hear things from different directions
cartesian coordinate geomentry just like graphing for math, the axes are always perspendicular to each other
degrees of freedom the number of ways the robot manipulator can move
degrees of rotation the extent that a robots joint or set of joints can move
manipulators robots arms
resolution the extention between man and robot, the distance between to objects
revolute geometry how a robots arm can rotate 360 degrees
sensitivity ability of a machine or robot to see in dim light or sense wavelenths
telepresence where the operator is in one spot and the operation is in another (1 mile apart)
free electrons create electric current
monopolar can cut and coagulate, you need a grounding pad, uses pencil
bipolar can only coagulates, dont need grounding pad, is more delicate, uses forcepts
generator main part of machine that generates the electricty
infrared red beam, waves
ultraviolet purple light , waves
does not go through fluids co2 laser
CPU (central processing unit) brain of the computer
active electrode surgical pencil
dispersive electrode grounding pad
harmonic scalpel uses sound waves to cut and coagulate simutaneously, no grounding pad, no electricity
argon gas only coagulates, foot operated, low burn, has beam
robotic manipulator- pitch up and down
robotic manipulator- yaw right and left
robotic manipulator- roll rotating movement
