What Makes Surgical Robots Tick?
What Makes Surgical Robots Tick?. In 1985, for the first time, a robot was used to assist in a surgical procedure on a human. A trail-blazing, adventurous team had modified an industrial robot that guided a needle in a brain biopsy procedure. Since then the rate of new technological advancements has done nothing but accelerate. That fast pace is reflected in what has made robot assisted surgery a hot new trend that promises to revolutionize medicine in coming years. A Brief History... (read more)

Piezo Motors Power MRI Robot
Surgeons treating brain cancer face a conundrum: They can capture ultra-high-resolution images of the tumor using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or they can use ultra-precise surgical tools to remove the tumor, but they can't do both at the same time. At least they couldn't previously. Today, Worcester Polytechnic Institute professor Greg Fischer, is busy developing a surgical robot designed for use inside an MRI machine. Guided by real-time feedback, the robot can position a high-energy... (read more)

Haptic devices use high bandwidth servo motors
five- and six-axis robots that supply crisp, realistic sensations. To do so, they leverage proprietary hardware and software, along with high-torque, high-bandwidth motors from MICROMO. Quanser started out serving the educational market, with products such as surgical simulators that permit medical students to experience making incisions without the use of a cadaver. "You can simulate the whole procedure and have them feel the same sensations they would if they were doing the real thing," says... (read more)

Reliability and Performance of Innovative Surgical Double-Glove Hole Puncture Indication Systems
Because double-gloves are also susceptible to needle puncture,a double-glove hole indication system is urgently needed to immediately detect surgical needle glove punctures.
An Expanded Surgical Suture and Needle Evaluation and Selection Program By a Healthcare Resource Management Group Purchasing Organization
In this expanded evaluation program, 42 Consorta share- holder hospitals enrolled 1913 surgeons to participate in Phase II of this non-experimental observational study of the clinical performance of surgical needles and sutures.
Reducing Accidental Injuries During Surgery
ABSTRACT: Extensive clinical investigations have demonstrated that double-gloves and blunt-tipped surgical needles dramatically reduced the risk of accidental injuries during surgery.
An Innovative Surgical Suture and Needle Evaluation and Selection Program
Nineteen Consorta shareholder hospitals enrolled 699 surgeons to participate in Phase I of this nonexperimental observational study of the clinical performance of surgical needles and sutures.
Wound Closure Sutures and Needles: A New Perspective
A new high-nickel stainless steel, SURGALLOYTM , has been used recently to manufacture surgical needles .
Reducing Accidental Injuries During Surgery
When the gynecologist was interviewed about his surgical technique, it was learned that he often held a surgical needle in his hand during suturing instead of using a needle holder.
This is compared with only 35 % free margins when the initial diagnostic procedure for diagnosis was an open surgical ( needle localization) biopsy .
Intraoperative Imaging and Image-Guided Therapy
The surgical needle has a nearly half circular shape with a radius 8.5 mm and a needle diameter d of 1 mm.
