Virtual and Physical Prototyping System of Surgical Instruments

A prototyping Station has been implemented for the prototype evaluation of robotic surgical instruments.


Master-Slave system for virtual an physical prototyping of surgical instruments

The purpose of this system is to evaluate the performance of different virtual prototypes of surgical instruments using a physical teleoperated system with virtual constraints.

The master station is based on a multi-finger haptic station and the salve site is based on a two-finger robot with three-axis force measurement.

The purpose of this page is to support the submission of publications related to this new method with experimental data, videos and pictures.

Experiments data:

Download the computer-recorded data, in CSV ASCII format, of force and positions of the clinical experiments. Each file is named with the volunteer, prototype and trial numbers. Columns are: Time (milliseconds), Cartesian position of finger 1 (x,y,z), Cartesian Position of Finger 2 (x,y,z) , Force reading at finger 1 sensor(fx,fy,fz), Force reading at finger 2 sensor (fx,fy,fz),  Virtual forces (feedback) of sensors in finger 1 (fx, fy, fz) and  Virtual forces (feedback) of sensors in finger 2 (fx, fy, fz).

May the force (and the torque) be with you.
