Minimally invasive telerobotic surgical systems enable surgeons to perform complicated procedures without large incisions. Unfortunately, these systems typically do not provide the surgeon with sensory feedback aside from stereoscopic vision. We have, thus, developed VerroTouch, a sensing and actuating device that can be added to Intuitive Surgical's(More)
The Intuitive da Vinci system enables surgeons to see and manipulate structures deep within the body via tiny incisions. Though the robotic tools mimic one's hand motions, surgeons cannot feel what the tools are touching, a striking contrast to non-robotic techniques. We have developed a new method for partially restoring this lost sense of touch. Our(More)
INTRODUCTION Teleoperated robotic surgery systems can provide naturalistic hand-to-tool motion mappings and high-definition stereoscopic visuals; however, surgeons [1-2] and engineers [3-4] recognize that the lack of touch feedback provided to the operator remains a major limitation of these devices. Without effective haptic cues, the surgeon must rely on(More)
