Painless creation of openings in nails

The video shows the drilling of a toenail and automatic retraction of the cutter. The rotating cutter drills an opening in the nail plate until a preset electrical impedance is reached. The electrical impedance is set to trigger a rapid retraction of the cutter just prior to reaching the nail bed. This prevents any sensation or damage to the nail bed tissue.
