... in minimally invasive surgery. Finally, the paper will conclude with a detailed discussion on the results. The in-mold assembly process using insert molding involves the use of cylindrical metallic parts made of Brass as mold inserts. The mold design concept for manufacturing an in-mold assembled...

... accuracy. Indeed, marked residual motion of the area of interest can be observed. In this paper, we address the problem with the design of an active stabilizer, i.e., an active mechanism controlled to cancel any residual motion during the surgery. The design methodology is based on dynamic modeling...

...Mark E. Rentschler; Shane M. Farritor; Karl D. Iagnemma A new approach to laparoscopic surgery involves placing a robot completely within the patient. These in vivo robots are then able to provide visual feedback and task assistance that would otherwise require additional incisions. Wheeled in vivo...

...Paul Breedveld; Shigeo Hirose Visual feedback during laparoscopic surgery is provided by an endoscope with a camera that is inserted through a small incision in the abdominal wall. The incision restricts the endoscope movements to 4 degrees of freedom (DOF), making it impossible to observe organs...
