Sensory feedback exploitation for robot-assisted exploration of the spinal cord

Abstract

The biomedical application this paper refers to is the neuroendoscopy of the sub-arachnoid spinal space. Such a kind of endoscopy is strongly challenging due to the tiny space to be explored and to the delicate anatomical structures which lie into it. In order to enhance the degree of safety of the endoscopic intervention, a robotic system for… (More)
