Surgical intervention, often including the insertion of pedicle screws into the vertebrae, remains a common treatment for a number of orthopaedic conditions, including scoliosis and external trauma to the spine. Minimally invasive surgery uses small incisions to access the surgical site, to minimize soft tissue trauma to the patient. The insertion of hardware into the spine during surgery is made increasingly perilous with the advent of these minimally invasive techniques. This study… 



Development of String Type Flexible Displacement Sensor to Measure the Movement of Robot and Human Body

A flexible displacement sensor and bending sensor which can measure the movement of human body, flexible actuator or flexible joint of the robot by mounting on the surface of them and the proposed analytical model can predict well the bending angle and bending direction.

A Novel Actuator for Underwater Robots

Pneumatic muscles have been used for a number of years as actuators in robotic systems, usually for those that mimic human actions. They are most commonly used in systems designed to aid physically
