Design and performance study of an orthopaedic surgery robotized module for automatic bone drilling.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Many orthopaedic operations involve drilling and tapping before the insertion of screws into a bone. This drilling is usually performed manually, thus introducing many problems. These include attaining a specific drilling accuracy, preventing blood vessels from breaking, and minimizing drill oscillations that would widen the hole. Bone… (More)
