2019 Towards a flexible multi-arm robot for interventions within the eye orbit

Abstract

While continuum robots have been studied for a variety of surgical applications (e.g., heart, lung, brain, eye, kidney), no existing robotic system can be applied to deep orbital interventions. This work for the first time aims to develop a robotic system designed for deep orbital interventions. A novel fully flexible multi-arm system, based on concentric tube technology, capable of bimanual manipulations and visualization is described herein.
