Neurosurgical procedures require precise and dexterous manipulation of a surgical suture in narrow and deep spaces in the brain. This is necessary for surgical tasks such as the anastomosis of microscopic blood vessels and dura mater suturing. A hand-held multi-degree of freedom (DOF) robotic forceps was developed to aid the performance of such difficult(More)
Robotic assistance enables a surgeon to perform dexterous and precise manipulations. However, conducting robot assisted neurosurgery within the deep and narrow spaces of the brain presents the risk of unexpected collisions between the shafts of robotic instruments and their surroundings out of the microscopic view. Thus, we propose the provision of feedback(More)
