This paper describes the development of a novel laparoscope manipulator using the medical hydraulic linear actuators, called P-arm. The manipulator is composed of a Stewart-Gough Platform with six degrees of freedom and six hydraulic linear actuators, and can hold a general laparoscope. In the current prototype, the position of a laparoscope can be(More)
The endotracheal tube (ETT) constitutes a significant component of total airway resistance. However, a discrepancy between measured and theoretical values has been reported in airway resistance through ETTs. The causes of the discrepancy were estimated by physical and rheological simulations. The pressure losses through total lengths of ETTs and slip joints(More)
