2018 7th IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics (Biorob)

The RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics - BioRob 2018 - is a joint effort of the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation - RAS - and Engineering in Medicine and Biology - EMBS.BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a "biomechatronic" point of view, trying to understand the scientific and engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave and interact can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems for many different applications; and to develop novel nano, micro-, macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation.

A hand-held scintillation camera has been developed for localizing Sentinel Lymph Nodes (SLN) during or prior to surgery. Use of gamma proves has increased in recent years to identify SLNs as these are increasingly implicated in the spread of cancerous cells. The functionality of this new imaging probe will go beyond that of current non-imaging devices by displaying activity distributions ...


Surgical robots and other training tools in minimally invasive surgery

J. Dankelman 2004 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics (IEEE Cat. No.04CH37583), 2004

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is an operating technique using long instruments inserted via small incisions in the skin. Because of the interposition of these instruments, haptic feedback is limited to force feedback to the human hand. Extensive training is needed to master this difficult surgical method. Traditionally, surgical training is obtained in the OR under suspension of an experienced surgeon. ...

Seunghwan Kim; Daehie Hong; Jung-Hoon Hwang; Bongseok Kim; Samuel W. Choi 2009 IEEE International Conference on Technologies for Practical Robot Applications, 2009

In robot-assisted surgery, haptic feedback is ongoing issue. The breaking of surgical suture material and the damage of tissue are avoidable with haptic feedback. This paper is proposing to add haptic feedback in the da Vinci like robot using unmodified da Vinci surgical instrument. To overcome the restriction of space and difficulty in measuring the force at the end- effector, ...


A Compact, Modular, Teleoperated Robotic Minimally Invasive Surgery System

P. Berkelman; Ji Ma The First IEEE/RAS-EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics, 2006. BioRob 2006., 2006

Compared to traditional open surgery, minimally invasive surgical procedures reduce patient trauma and recovery time, yet the dexterity of the surgeon is reduced due to the small incisions, long instruments, and limited indirect visibility of the operative site inside the patient. Robotic surgical systems, teleoperated by a surgeon from a master control console with joystick-type manipulation interfaces, have been commercially ...

This review looks at the implementation of magnetic-based approaches in surgical instruments for abdominal surgeries. As abdominal surgical techniques advance toward minimizing surgical trauma, surgical instruments are enhanced to support such an objective through the exploration of magnetic-based systems. With this design approach, surgical devices are given the capabilities to be fully inserted intraabdominally to achieve access to all abdominal ...

  • RobotAssisted Microsurgery Development at JPL

    Microsurgeons use a microscope with 20 to 30 times magnification to help them visualize the microscopic field they work with. However, they still use their hands to hold instruments that manipulate tissue with feature sizes from fifty to a few hundred microns. A microsurgical manipulator that can scale down the surgeon's hand motions to the microscopic field would allow the average surgeon to perform at the level of the best surgeons and allow the most skillful surgeons to perform at unprecedented levels of dexterity. Development of practical systems for assisting microsurgeons in this way is a growing field of research. Microtelerobotic workstations systems that have been developed for biomedical applications. The work reported here is the result of collaboration between researchers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and Steve Charles, a vitreo-retinal surgeon. The Robot-Assisted Microsurgery (RAMS) telerobotic workstation developed at JPL is a prototype of a system that will be completely under the manual control of a surgeon. It is unique in its combination of compact size, light weight, and high precision. The system, has a slave robot that holds surgical instruments. The surgeon commands motions for the instrument by moving the handle on a master device in the desired trajectories. The trajectories are measured, filtered, and scaled down then used to drive the slave robot. We present the details of this telerobotic system by first giving an overview of the subsystems and their interactions and then presenting details. The chapter concludes with a description of a recent demonstration of a simulated microsurgery procedure performed at JPL.
