Medical robotics is still a relatively new field with researchers and companies all adopting various styles and techniques to solve the challenges faced. This chapter outlines one unique approach to the development of a medical robot for the reduction of broken femurs. Fractures are common injuries, for example in adults over the age of 65 it is reported that 87% of falls results in a fracture (Canale & Campbell, 2003). This has lead to the development of focused trauma centers having the… CONTINUE READING
