Mechanical Routers, Bone
Definition : Mechanical routers designed for making smooth (e.g., rounded) edges and/or to mill out the surface of bones usually using a template. Orthopedic routers typically consist of a portable or benchtop machine with an electric motor, a base, a revolving vertical spindle, and cutting tools (e.g., bits). The routers may include lights to provide illumination and/or a support for the piece (e.g., a vise clamped to a bench) that is being conformed. Orthopedic mechanical routers are mainly intended for reshaping bones during orthopedic procedures, including minimally access surgery of the articulations (e.g., knee) and also to reshape bones in orthopedic workshops.
