Laparoscopic robot is used to grasp endoscope to output image of focal area for surgeons in minimally invasive surgery (MIS), so it is necessary to set relative position between laparoscopic robot base and patient's focal area to make all focal points locate into robot workspace. For the reasons of surgeons needing to do much work in preoperative process and many surgical instruments occupying much space in operating room, it is impossible to realize position set by repeated trial and error… CONTINUE READING
