This is just a quick video showing the adjustment of the telescopic guide- note the depth marking and the squeeze and rotate feature of the stops

Cheers,

Richard,
nice demonstration of Versah stop drill.
How easy do you find the engagement of the gray piece to the black one?
Thanks for showing a very first experience on the field.

Armando,

The adjustment is simple - once you squeeze the outer sleeve and rotate is locks onto the inner sleeve and stays in place fairly consistently

Cant wait to see what you have coming!

Cheers,

Richard

What is FHGS???

Hi Richard. As much as I appreciate the video, I don't fell it does this ingenious innovation justice. IMO at this stage of development the Versah video is more appropriate. BTW your assistant appears to use suction in close proximity to the guide. This couldn't possibly help with irrigation. Perhaps no suction or external irrigation would be help?
On another note, isn't Free Handed Guided Surgery (FHGS) a oxymoron? I love you man, but I must call it as I see it. Cheers Chuck.

The italian translation is a bit Tricky.

Armando. An oxymoron is a figure of speech where the elements are contradictory (opposite), but contain a concealed meaning. For example these expressions arer oxymorons: " Cruel Kindness" "The same difference" "Jumbo shrimp" "Plastic glasses" "Pretty ugly" ect. Just as Free hand is the opposite of guided.

Chuck,

This video is first of a 3 part series - hopefully by the final you will appreciate the first which is really just show the adjustability and depth markings up close.
The proximity of the suction to the guide is done for demonstration purposes suck away all the water so you can get a true appreciation up close without irrigation in the way- We use external and internal irrigation - in the upcoming video you will see a monsoon of water.

Ah - the oxymoron- Ive been called worse- ha- but if you know my style this is right up my alley and in actuallity - the telescopic stop guides my depth and my drill is free of surgical guide stent and my hand can freely rotate the hand piece is needed.........

Cheers,
