A unique endoscopic platform with two independent end-effectors, each with five degrees of freedom, and an ergonomic user interface has been developed to address the needs of complex endolumenal and natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) procedures. This study aimed to measure the amount this new platform would improve performance for bimanual coordination compared with a standard dual-channel scope using a benchtop simulation. Task 1 involved 12 individuals performing an… CONTINUE READING
