Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanical engineering
  • Composite material
  • Tissue thickness

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Tissue thickness, Surgical stapling, STAPLE DRIVER, Robot end effector and Surgical instrument. As a part of the same scientific family, Frederick E. Shelton mostly works in the field of Tissue thickness, focusing on Cartridge and, on occasion, Structural engineering, Fastener and Deck. His Surgical stapling research incorporates themes from Mechanical engineering, Simulation and Lockout Mechanism.

His STAPLE DRIVER research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Acoustics, Bar, Mechanism, Surgical staple and Tissue compression. His Robot end effector research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Closed position, Actuator, Control theory and Drive shaft. His study on Surgical instrument also encompasses disciplines like

  • Robotic systems most often made with reference to Control engineering,
  • Electrical engineering that intertwine with fields like Drivetrain.

His most cited work include:

  • Surgical stapling instrument having separate distinct closing and firing systems (1440 citations)
  • Surgical stapling instrument having a single lockout mechanism for prevention of firing (1396 citations)
  • Articulating surgical stapling instrument incorporating a two-piece e-beam firing mechanism (1344 citations)
