• Design and Comparison of Magnetically-Actuated Dexterous Forceps Instruments for Neuroendoscopy

    10 days ago - By EMBS

    Robot assistance is revolutionizing minimally invasive surgical techniques. As robot assistance becomes standard in areas such as urology and general surgery, it remains largely absent in neurosurgery. The primary reason is a lack of dexterous wristed tools that are small and compact enough to maneuver within the confines of the brain. In this study, we present a wireless magnetic power transmission that enables the design of unconventional tiny wristed robot tools. By deploying the tools endoscopically within a silicone brain model, we demonstrate the feasibility of these novel devices...
