Application: Devices for assisting with heart valve manufacturing (Patent ID: US20240008976A1)

The patent filed by Edwards Lifesciences Corp. describes an assistance system for prosthetic heart valve manufacturing or suturing procedures. The system includes an automated fixture with an articulation arm and a target device holder to reduce operator strain during the manufacturing or inspection process. A user input device allows the operator to move between positions to assist in the procedures, and the system can be trained by capturing sequences of position data corresponding to the process.

The suturing system outlined in the patent includes an automated suture fixture with motorized actuator devices and a suture target holder, controlled by a controller that retrieves position data from a data store to guide the positioning of the suture target holder. A user input device allows for adjustments to the fixture's position based on operator input. Additionally, the system incorporates a camera system to generate images of the suture target holder and a display system to showcase these images, enhancing the precision and efficiency of the suturing process. Overall, the patent details a comprehensive system designed to streamline and optimize prosthetic heart valve manufacturing and suturing procedures through automation and user-friendly controls.
