Trials on SMARTsurg Robot-Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery demo unit

The SMARTsurg Team has designed and built a Robot Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery demo unit. The project incorporates key novelties / advances for the next generation of surgical robotics:

• The perception of “feeling” the instrument in the hands is restore back to the Surgeons via the development of highly dexterous anthropomorphic surgical instruments and wearable hand exoskeleton with haptic feedback.

• Active Dynamic Constraints using point cloud real time 3D reconstruction and wearable smart glasses for augmented reality allow the Surgeon to safely perform procedures in areas close to veins or critical organs.

The SMARTsurg demo unit has been evaluated by Surgeons for oncological, cardio-vascular and orthopedic procedures.
