A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11882768B2) discloses a novel handset designed for ultrasonic devices used in bone cement removal and osteotomy operations. The handset features an ultrasound generating system with piezoelectric transducers and a horn enclosed within a handset body. It includes a cooling duct, a triggering element activated by a control lever, and covering elements for the associated tool and horn. The control lever, housed in the handset body, is operated by a user-engaged surface and can activate the ultrasound system. Additionally, the handset incorporates luminous signaling elements to indicate operational status, a lighting element for illuminating the treatment zone, and a silicone covering for the control lever.

Furthermore, the patent details a gripping system integrated into the handset, allowing for the mechanical transmission of control lever movement. The gripping system, positioned transversely to the handset body, includes a control element that operates a cam-type mechanical transmission for control lever movement. The system is detachable from the handset body, with a removable connection facilitated by an eccentric ring nut on the handle body. This innovative design enhances the usability and functionality of the handset for bone cement removal and osteotomy procedures, offering a comprehensive solution for healthcare professionals in these specialized fields.
