【0008】前記充電装置3は、例えば商用電源や外部電源から供給される電力を伝送するための電源ケーブル21と、この電源ケーブル21を介して電力の供給を受け、前記手術具2のバッテリ14を充電するための充電装置本体22を備えて構成されている。 [0008] The charging device 3, for example, a power cable 21 for transmitting a power supplied from a commercial power supply or an external power supply, receives power via the power cable 21, the battery 14 of the surgical instrument 2 It is configured to include a charging device main body 22 for charging.

【0009】前記電源ケーブル21は、一方の端部に設けられ、商用電源や外部電源に着脱自在に接続される気密構造のプラグ31と、他方の端部に設けられ、前記充電装置本体22に着脱自在に接続される気密構造のコネクタ32を備えて構成されている。 [0009] The power cable 21 is provided at one end, a plug 31 of the airtight structure which is detachably connected to a commercial power supply or an external power source, provided on the other end, to the charging device body 22 It is configured to include a connector 32 of the airtight structure which is detachably connected. なお、本願において、気密とは、例えば高温高圧水蒸気を用いたオートクレーブ滅菌等の滅菌処理に耐えうる程度の気密を意味している。 In the present application, and is airtight, for example, means a airtight enough to withstand a sterilization autoclave sterilization or the like using a high-temperature high-pressure steam.

【0010】前記充電装置本体22は、前記電源ケーブル21のコネクタ32が着脱自在に接続される気密構造のコネクタ41と、このコネクタ41を介して供給される電力を電源として高周波を発生する高周波発生器42 [0010] The charging apparatus main body 22, the power supply connector 41 of the airtight connector 32 of the cable 21 is detachably connected to the high-frequency generator which generates a high-frequency electric power supplied via the connector 41 as a power supply vessel 42
と、前記手術具2を自在に挿入するための例えば複数の手術具挿入口43と、この手術具挿入口43に内周が連通した筒体43aと、この筒体43aの外周に巻回され、前記高周波発生器42から高周波の供給を受けることで、誘導結合により前記手術具2の受電コイル15へ電力を供給するための送電コイル44を備えて構成されている。 When a plurality of surgical instrument insertion port 43 for example for inserting the surgical instrument 2 freely, the cylindrical body 43a of the inner periphery communicating with the surgical instrument insertion port 43, wound around the outer periphery of the cylindrical body 43a , the high frequency generator 42 from that supplied with the high frequency, is configured to include a power transmission coil 44 for supplying electric power to the power receiving coil 15 of the surgical instrument 2 by inductive coupling.

【0011】前記コネクタ41は、充電装置本体22の筐体内部へ高温高圧水蒸気等が侵入しないように気密を維持すべく構成されている。 [0011] The connector 41 is, high-temperature high-pressure steam or the like to the housing interior of the charging device body 22 is configured to maintain a gas-tight so as not to penetrate. また、前記筒体43aは、 Further, the cylindrical body 43a is
手術具挿入口43側のみ解放されており、他の面は気密に塞がれている。 Only surgical instrument insertion port 43 side has been released, the other surface is sealed airtight. これにより、充電装置本体22の筐体内は、気密が保たれている。 Thus, the housing of the charging device body 22, airtightness is maintained.

【0012】次に、本実施の形態の作用を説明する。 [0012] Next, operation of the present embodiment. 手術や検査に先立ち、手術具2と、充電装置本体22と、 Prior to surgery and examination, the surgical tool 2, the charging apparatus main body 22,
電源ケーブル21を滅菌する。 To sterilize the power cable 21. このとき、充電装置本体22の筐体は、気密構造となっているので、例えば、オートクレーブ滅菌を施すことができる。 In this case, the housing of the charging device body 22, since a gas-tight structure, for example, can be subjected to autoclave sterilization.

【0013】例えば手術や検査中に、手術具2のバッテリ14の電力残量が不足した状態となったときは、前記電源ケーブル21のプラグ31を商用電源或いは外部電源に接続し、コネクタ32をコネクタ41に接続し、手術具2を充電装置本体22の手術具挿入口43へ挿入する。 [0013] For example, during surgery or examination, when the remaining power of the surgical instrument 2 of the battery 14 is in a state of insufficient connects the plug 31 of the power cable 21 to a commercial power supply or the external power source, the connector 32 to connector 41, inserts the surgical instrument 2 to the surgical instrument insertion port 43 of the charging device body 22.

【0014】すると、高周波発生器42で発生した高周波電流が送電コイル44を流れ、送電コイル44と非接触で誘導結合した手術具2の受電コイル15へ電力が伝送され、この受電コイル15を介して供給された電力は、充電回路16によりバッテリ14へ与えられ、バッテリ14が充電される。 [0014] Then, the high-frequency current flows through the power transmission coil 44 generated by the RF generator 42, power is transmitted to the power receiving coil 15 of the surgical instrument 2 which is inductively coupled with the power transmission coil 44 in a non-contact, via the power receiving coil 15 power supplied Te is the charging circuit 16 is given to the battery 14, the battery 14 is charged.

【0015】以上説明したように、本実施の形態によれば、バッテリ14を手術具2に装填したまま充電することができる。 [0015] As described above, according to this embodiment can be charged while loaded battery 14 to the surgical instrument 2. また、充電装置本体22が気密構造であるので例えばオートクレーブ滅菌等の滅菌処理を施すことが可能であり、充電装置本体22に滅菌処理を施すと、 Further, the charging device body 22 is in airtight and can be subjected to sterilization treatment, for example, autoclave sterilization or the like, when subjected to a sterilization treatment to the charging device body 22,
手術具挿入口43が滅菌状態となるので、手術具挿入口43に手術具2を挿入しても手術具2の滅菌状態は維持される。 Since surgical instrument insertion port 43 is sterile, sterility of the surgical instrument insertion port 43 into the surgical instrument 2 inserted surgery even instrument 2 is maintained. また、手術具2を充電装置3で充電した後は、 Also, after charging the surgical instrument 2 in the charging device 3,
手術具2の滅菌状態が維持されているので、直ぐ手術具2を使用することができる。 Since sterility of the surgical instrument 2 is maintained, it is possible to immediately use the surgical tool 2. 従って、本実施の形態によれば、医療器具としての手術具2の滅菌状態を維持しつつ、且つバッテリ14を手術具2に装填したまま充電することを可能とすることで、滅菌処理にかかる手間が削減されて作業効率が向上し、且つ充電後に直ぐ手術具2 Therefore, according to this embodiment, while maintaining sterility of the surgical instrument 2 as a medical instrument, and that makes it possible to charge while loading the battery 14 to a surgical instrument 2, according to the sterilization time is reduced to improve the working efficiency, and immediately surgical tool after charging 2
が使用可能となるという効果が得られる。 There effect that becomes available. また、電源ケーブル21のプラグ31及びコネクタ32を気密構造として、電源ケーブル21を滅菌可能にしたことで、充電装置3を使用する際に、滅菌状態の術者等が電源ケーブル21を充電装置本体22に接続することができる。 The power plug 31 and the connector 32 of the cable 21 as airtight structure, by a power cable 21 and the sterilizable, when using the charging device 3, the charging device body operator or the like of the sterilization status of the power cable 21 it can be connected to 22. なお、術者以外の補佐者が電源ケーブル21の接続を行うことが可能な場合は、電源ケーブル21は滅菌されていなくてもよいので、電源ケーブル21が滅菌可能に構成されていなくても本発明の範疇である。 This should be noted that if it is possible assistant's non surgeon makes a power cable 21, the power supply cable 21 may be sterile, even when the power supply cable 21 is not be configured to be sterilized It falls within the scope of the invention. また、複数の手術具挿入口43を設けたので、複数の手術具2を用意し、1つの手術具2を使用中に、他の手術具2を充電装置3で充電しておき、使用中の手術具2の電力残量が不足したら、使用中の手術具2と充電中の手術具2とを交換して手術或いは検査を続けることで、手術或いは検査を途絶えることなく行うことができる。 Further, since a plurality of surgical instrument insertion port 43, preparing a plurality of surgical tools 2, while using one surgical instrument 2, leave charge other surgical instrument 2 by the charging device 3, during use When you lack the amount of power left in the surgical tools 2 is, by continuing the surgery or examination to replace the surgical tool 2 during charging and the surgical tool 2 in use, it can be carried out without interrupted the surgery or examination. なお、手術具挿入口43の数が1つであっても、本発明の範疇である。 The number of surgical instrument insertion opening 43 be one, in the scope of the present invention.
また、外部から電力の供給を受けてこの電力を高周波発生器42へ与えるコネクタ41を充電装置本体22に設ける代わりに、高周波発生器へ電力を供給する図示しないバッテリを充電装置本体22に内蔵する構成としても本発明の範疇である。 Also, built instead of providing the connector 41 which receives power from an external supply this power to the high frequency generator 42 to the charging device body 22, a battery (not shown) for supplying power to the high frequency generator to the charging device body 22 it is also within the scope of the present invention as a constituent.
