Recently, research on bone fracture and osteoplasty using ultrasonic bone surgery unit has been ongoing in the fields of dentistry, plastic surgery, and otorhinolaryngology. However, detailed data evaluation with ultrasonic bone surgery unit has not been conducted to date. In this study, we developed handpiece moving system (HMS) for cutting performance evaluation. In the experimental setup of HMS, a handpiece was immobilized, and bone samples from cortical bone of bovine leg were prepared. Also, the experimental process was described in detail, and a basic experiment was carried out to evaluate the cutting performance. Future study is required on all experimental process conditions by HMS.
