Highly advanced robotic hand prostheses are praised for their impressive grasping and pinching capabilities. Nevertheless, a high demand remains for grasping mechanisms that are cheaper to produce, easier to assemble and lower in overall maintenance. In this paper, the idea of creating a 3D printable underactuated grasper was realized to fulfill...

Meniscectomy is a medical procedure where ruptured meniscal tissue is removed within the knee joint. The con- ventional cutters fail to reach the entire meniscus. Therefore, the focus of this study is to create a cutter with a steerable tip, which allows sideway steering to increase the reacha- bility within the knee joint. Additionally, this...
