Abstract

A surgical tool includes a drive housing having an input shaft arranged therein for rotation, an elongate shaft that extends from the drive housing, and an end effector operatively coupled to a distal end of the elongate shaft. A cable band is coupled to the input shaft and operatively couples the input shaft to a drive cable that extends to the end effector. Rotation of the input drive correspondingly moves the cable band and thereby controls longitudinal movement of the drive cable to articulate the end effector.
