Standard Test Method for Measuring Accuracy after Mechanical Disturbances on Reference Frames of Computer Assisted Surgery Systems
|Publication Date:||1 December 2014|
This standard will measure the effects on the accuracy of computer assisted surgery (CAS) systems of the environmental influences caused by equipment utilized for bone preparation during the intended clinical application for the system. The environmental vibration effect covered in this standard will include mechanical vibration from: Cutting saw (sagittal or reciprocating), Burrs, drills and impact loading. The change in accuracy from detaching and re-attaching, or disturbing a restrained connection that does not by design require repeating the registration process of a reference base will also be measured.
It should be noted that one system may need to undergo multiple iterations (one for each clinical application) of this standard to document its accuracy during different clinical applications since each procedure may have different exposure to outside forces given the surgical procedure variability from one procedure to the next.
All units of measure will be reported as millimeters for this standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
