EndoAssist is a robotic camera-holding device controlled by the operator's head movements. Operations on forty-nine patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery were made using the robotic assistant. The aim of our project was to find out how using an EndoAssist-robot influences the operating times in contrast to using human assistant. A further aim was to(More)
We examined the functionality and reliability of a wearable physiological monitoring system (LifeShirt) during normal daily activities and in a hospital operating room (OR) environment. The garment collects physiological data such as oxygen saturation, and stores them in a recorder from which it can be read afterwards. Ten normal subjects wore the shirt(More)

The answer to this question is that the information goes from one place to another, not the patient. First we had a pilot project, where we used(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of our prospective study was to examine the technical ability and the medical suitability of a realtime teleconferencing system in surgical consultations. METHOD A personal computer-based-videoconferencing system was used over an architecture of the IP (Internet Protocol) over ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) area network connecting(More)
