Generation of grip on soft tissue in the surgical field is most commonly done with forceps that generate friction grip, that is, the translation of normal (pinch) forces into shear forces. Errors made with these surgical grippers are often force-related: applying too low pinch forces results in slipping of the tissue out of the gripper, and too...

Cuellar Lopez, J.S. (author)
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that there are ≈40 million amputees in developing countries and that only ≈5% of them have access to prosthetic devices. In low income countries, there are only a few big cities capable of providing reasonable healthcare services and transportation from rural areas is usually complicated, expensive,...

Scali, M. (author)
During percutaneous interventions, medical needles are inserted through the skin inside the body to collect diagnostic samples or to inject substances in a minimally invasive manner. However, when the target to be reached is located deep inside the body, needle insertion becomes challenging: the needle should be long enough to reach the target,...

Surgical procedures are inherently invasive as they require the surgeon to cut into the body to create a surgical pathway towards the diseased area, resulting in surgical trauma for the patient. The field of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) strives to reduce surgical trauma by minimizing the size and number of incisions. The used instrumentation...

The field of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is constantly evolving towards the minimization of surgical trauma. Surgical instrumentation enabling this advancement must aid the surgeon, rather than hamper or burden. Surgeon-Instrument Interaction (SII) is of particular importance. Bad SII-design choices during instrument development can...

Contemporary medical imaging technologies, such as computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging, play a pivotal role in medical diagnosis, allowing for a relatively fast and non-invasive examination of the human body. In the field of cancer surgery they allow for preoperative detection of tumorous tissue and aid the surgical planning....

Fan, C. (author)
With the introduction of new technologies, surgical procedures have been varying from free access in open surgery towards limited access in minimal invasive surgery. During such procedures, surgeons have to manoeuver the instruments from outside the patient while looking at the monitor. Long and slender instruments are developed that can insert...
