A patient support apparatus including a seat section, a backrest section that is movable relative to the seat section, and an arm supported relative to the seat section. The arm is adapted to move between a first position adjacent the seat section for use as an arm rest for a person sitting on the patient support apparatus to a raised second position adjacent the backrest section. The arm and the backrest section are coupled together when the arm is in the raised second position wherein the arm moves with the backrest section.

A system for manipulating tissue comprises an access cannula having a lumen, a cannula adapter, rotationally and axially locked to said access cannula, and a deformable conduit assembly comprising a deformable conduit and a hub coupled to said deformable conduit. The lumen of the access cannula is dimensioned to allow the said deformable conduit to be disposed within said access cannula. Said cannula adapter is configured to cooperate with said hub to releasably fix said access cannula to said deformable conduit in the axial direction to prevent the access cannula from moving in a longitudinal direction relative to said hub.

A person support apparatus (10) includes a base (13), a controller, and a barrier (12) having at least one electrical device and mounting structures (15) for releasably mounting the barrier (12) to the base (13). A first electrical connector (24) is in communication with the at least one electrical device and mounted to the barrier (12). A second electrical connector (20) is in communication with the controller for connection with the first electrical connector (24) when the barrier (12) is mounted to the base (13) at the mounting structures (15). An obstruction indicator indicates an obtrusive object between the electrical connectors (20, 24). The mounting structures (15) include a protruding structure (16) protruding from the barrier (12) or the base (13). The protruding structure (16) comprises either the first or the second connector, and formes the obstruction indicator.

A patient support apparatus, such as a bed, cot, recliner, operating table, stretcher, or the like, includes a control panel with multiple controls for controlling functions of the patient support apparatus. A control system disables at least a first control and changes an illumination state of a backlight when the patient support apparatus is in a particular state. In some embodiments, the particular state is the arming of an exit detection system and/or the deactivation of a brake on the patient support apparatus. The particular state may also or alternatively be tied to a particular mode of the patient support apparatus, such as a diagnostic mode, a maintenance mode, and/or a normal mode. The control system may also never illuminate a first icon on the patient support apparatus if it was initially configured in a particular manner, such as being intended for sale in a particular geographic market.

Delivery systems include a delivery instrument and a delivery device removably attached to the delivery instrument. A plurality of actuators are operable to position an opening of the delivery device with respect to the target site. A material supply system supplies the material to the delivery device. A navigation system tracks the target site and the opening as the target site moves during the procedure and as the opening moves during the procedure. A controller controls movement of the opening and/or flow rate of the material to achieve desired delivery of the material at the target site using various methods.

A person support apparatus includes a base, wheels, a drive system, a support surface, a lift system, and a control. The control controls the drive system in response to forward/reverse forces applied thereto, and also controls the lift system in response to upward or downward forces applied thereto. In some embodiments, a controller compares a magnitude of the forward/reverse force to a magnitude of the upward/downward force and commands the drive system to drive the wheels if the magnitude of the forward/reverse force exceeds the magnitude of the upward/downward force. The control may include a user-engageable portion that is constructed to not move with respect to a force sensor when forward or reverse forces are applied to the user-engageable portion. The controller controls the drive system in response to the forward or reverse forces applied to the user-engageable portion.

A transmission (380) for use with a powered surgical tool (44) is descrbied, the tool having a body (45) and a rotating drive spindle (68) that extends from the body. The transmission comprises a housing (382, 412) having at least one feature (418, 419) for releasably attaching the housing to the tool body (45) and at least one feature (385, 387) for releasably attaching another device (520) to the housing. The transmission further comprises a drive link (470) disposed in the housing (380, 382) for reciprocating movement in the housing, the drive link including a feature (478) for engaging a driven component (552) of the device (520) attached to the housing, and a gear train (430) internal to the housing (382, 412), the gear train configured for connection to the tool spindle (68) and connected to the drive link (470), the gear train adapted to convert the rotary motion of the tool spindle into motion that reciprocates the drive link. The housing (382, 412) is shaped so that, when the housing is secured to the tool (44), a section of the housing extends over a section of the tool. The drive link (470) is disposed in the housing so as to be disposed for reciprocating movement in the section of the housing that extends over the tool (44).

A dynamic trialing method generally allows a surgeon to perform a preliminary bone resection on the distal femur according to a curved or planar resection profile. With the curved resection profile, the distal-posterior femoral condyles may act as a femoral trial component after the preliminary bone resection. This may eliminate the need for a separate femoral trial component, reducing the cost and complexity of surgery. With the planar resection profile, shims or skid-like inserts that correlate to the distal-posterior condyles of the final insert may be attached to the distal femur after the preliminary bone resection to facilitate intraoperative trialing. The method and related components may also provide the ability of a surgeon to perform iterative intraoperative kinematic analysis and gap balancing, providing the surgeon the ability to perform necessary ligament and/or other soft tissue releases and fine tune the final implant positions based on data acquired during the surgery.
