Despite having the robotic catheter systems which have recently emerged as safe way of performing cardiovascular interventions, a number of important challenges are yet to be investigated. One of them is exploration of surgeons' natural skills during vascular catheterization with robotic systems. In this study, surgeons' natural hand motions were investigated for identification of four basic movements used for intravascular catheterization. Controlled experiment was setup to acquire surface…

A Teleoperated Robotic Catheter System with Motion and Force Feedback for Vascular Surgery
A 2-DoF teleoperated robotic catheter system is proposed for treatment of vascular catheterization and can provide useful motion and force feedback for vascular surgery.
Towards Characterization and Adaptive Compensation of Backlash in a Novel Robotic Catheter System for Cardiovascular Interventions
A novel robotic catheter system is designed for accessing the human cardiac area through the radial vasculature, while single factor descriptive analysis is employed to characterize the backlash behavior during axial motions of the interventional robot.
Objective Assessment of Endovascular Navigation Skills with Force Sensing
This research proposes two platforms for measuring tool forces applied by operators and contact forces resulting from catheter–tissue interactions, as a means of providing accurate, objective metrics of operator skill within a realistic simulation environment.
An Interventionalist-Behavior-Based Data Fusion Framework for Guidewire Tracking in Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
Relevant statistical analysis reveals that this scheme outperforms the cases using fewer behaviors, and ensemble fusion brings significant error reduction compared with only local fusion, indicating the great potential of the proposed framework for promoting the improvement of guidewire tracking in PCI.
Recognition of Chronic Low Back Pain During Lumbar Spine Movements Based on Surface Electromyography Signals
Results suggest CLBP recognition based on sEMG as a promising alternative to the conventional methods, which could inspire the design of appropriate programs that can ensure effective rehabilitation of CLBP patients.
