Robot Surgeon of New Generation


Specialists of SFedU’s Engineering and Technology Academy in cooperation with Rostov Cancer Institute and NPO «Android Machines» are developing a robotic arm that can automatically control the laparoscope during operations.

Laparoscopic surgery is minimum or minimally invasive surgery, in which the human body is performed three small incisions that are not more than 1.5 cm in length, and hollow tubes are introduced in. In two of these surgical instruments are placed, in the third — laparoscope that is the stiff rigid tube with a lens system at the end of which the camera is fixed. With the help of it the surgeon can see the operated area.

The first robot manipulators appeared in the 80s of the last century. However, significant changes in the technology of their work during this time did not happen: so far, all manipulators are controlled by the surgeon. The scientists of Southern Federal University are developing a new type of robotic arm that will independently determine the location of the medical instrument, thereby providing an overview of the treated area.

This project will develop not just a single product, and create a basic technology of automatic control of high-precision robotic manipulators.
