Design and Manufacture of dual-bladed saw

Project Overview

A dual-bladed Surgical saw and methods of use are described in the United States Patent Number US 9,119,631 B1 and dated September 1, 2015. A preferred embodiment of the dual-bladed surgical saw include a saw body having a blade assembly attached thereto, the blade assembly being positioned about a rotational axis. A first blade is radially spaced about the rotational axis, extending outwardly from the blade assembly substantially parallel to the rotational axis, and terminating at a first cutting surface. A second blade is radially spaced about the rotational axis, extending outwardly from the blade assembly parallel to the rotational axis, and terminating at a second cutting surface. An oscillator mechanism is coupled for both the first and second blades for simultaneously reciprocating the first and second blades. The first blade is independently rotatable relative to the second blade about the rotational axis for defining a pre- determined cutting angle between the first blade and second blade.

Project Objectives

The major objectives of this project are listed as follows:
  • Design a blade assembly with dual blades to cut two different planes simultaneously.
  • Simplifying the surgical cutting procedure by reducing sequential cuts.
  • Reduce surgery time.
  • Accurate and precise cutting action with no further need for using a cutting guide.
