Handle Navigation for a Smart Handheld Robot

3 pagesPublished: October 27, 2019

Abstract

We demonstrated a miniature handheld robot in assisting the surgeon to create a tunnel during pedicle screw fixation. The robot is aimed at stabilizing the drill during penetrating the surface of a vertebra and reducing the drill drifting from the entry point caused by involuntary tremor. The handheld robot is consisted of a hexapod platform. The master control was designed to cooperate with the 6-DOF parallel slave robot. The human machine interface has been investigated for the drill to target the planned trajectory with the operator’s handle motion.
