Osteosynthesis procedures require the insertion of self-tapping orthopaedic screws through bone plates and into one or two layers of cortical bone, in order stabilize the fractured bones. Applying too much torque can cause the screw to strip and lose purchase, reducing the effective hold of the screw against the plate. Experienced surgeons have developed a “feel” for the torque-rotation relationship that reduces the risk of stripping. A haptic simulator for orthopaedic screw insertion… CONTINUE READING
