UroCare designed the SafePassage3 to be a dual electromechanical system. The product provides haptic feedback through the electronic components such as LED’s at each indicated force, a reset function, and a buzzer noise for increasing force. The fail safe incorporated into the device is the mechanical locking mechanism that prevents the surgeon from pushing too hard on the UAS. Our product is able to detect up to 8 newtons of force, the maximal force that causes lesions, and then activates the fail safe mode. The product will be successful to prevent surgeons from pushing to hard on the UAS causing lesions and future health problems for patients.
