Abstract

This paper describes the considerations leading to a hand-held surgical robot for micro-drilling. The sensing and control schemes are unique, enabling precise control of the tool with respect to tissues and enables preservation of tissues and reduction of tissue trauma. The device has been derived from a robotic tool supported on a fixed arm. The results will show that the method has considerable advantage over existing tools and robotic tools for a range of surgical processes, and that the principles can be applied to other cutting tools.
