Gram-negative Enterobacteriaceae with resistance to carbapenem conferred by New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase 1 (NDM-1) are a type of newly discovered antibioticresistant bacteria. The rapid pandemic spread of NDM-1 bacteria worldwide (spreading to India, Pakistan, Europe, America, and Chinese Taiwan) in less than 2 months characterizes these microbes as a(More)
Minimally invasive robotic surgery (MIRS), compared to open surgery and traditional minimally invasive surgery, has advantages especially for patients and surgeons. In MIRS the surgeon's capabilities are extended for kinds of dexterous instruments, and surgeons could perform precise and dexterous movements which are difficult to carry out by means of rigid(More)
Laparoscopic robot is used to grasp endoscope to output image of focal area for surgeons in minimally invasive surgery (MIS), so it is necessary to set relative position between laparoscopic robot base and patient's focal area to make all focal points locate into robot workspace. For the reasons of surgeons needing to do much work in preoperative process(More)
Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is less invasive and creating fewer post-operative complications compared with conventional surgery. This results in shorter recover times and, sometimes, outpatient treatment replaces for previously lengthier procedures. So MIS is the latest trend in surgery. However, MIS is usually associated with a limited view of the(More)
Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) has many advantages and is achieved mainly by Remote Center Motion. In this paper, a new RCM mechanism which is triangle is proposed, this mechanism is simple and high stiffness. Optimization incorporating the requirements for MIS are performed to find the optimal link lengths of the manipulator. The results show that for(More)
The master-slave control technology of isomeric surgical robot for minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is studied in order to meeting the requirement for robot MIS. The master-slave control hardware platform is built based on distributed fieldbus. The incremental control method based on separation of gesture from position is proposed by analyzing the(More)
Several passive joints are usually needed in surgical robots to decrease the difficulty in doctors' operating, which can be manually rotated without motor pushing. When stopped at a specified position, passive joints should be locked until operation ends, and keep bearing torques. This paper is aimed to design a locking method used in minimally invasive(More)
