"Motion Analysis for Creating Scrub Nurse Robots"
The main purpose of this study is to develop a human-adaptive surgical robot system for laparoscopic surgery that is controlled according to a surgical scenario. This study is intended to contribute to the development of a Scrub Nurse Robot (SNR) for the OR, that hands surgical instruments to surgeons and receives them back, partly or wholly replacing a human scrub nurse. Additionally, we constructed a surgical scenario model for laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery with timed automata. It is important to obtain effective intraoperative information for the appropriate interactive control of surgical robots. This presentation offers an overview of the “Human Adaptive Mechatronics”-based surgical system and of the construction of an algorithm for motion analysis of the intraoperative actions of a surgeon.
