Intelligent Surgical Robot System

(projected to be initiated in ~2012)

Introduction

Surgeries often rely on doctors’ senses. Human mistakes, negligence or malpractices are inevitable and could result in unfavorable or harmful effects on both patients and doctors. 

Nowadays, robot surgery systems have emerged in the goal of ensuring safety and better surgical performance. For example, da Vinci ® is one of the robotic surgical systems in the market, yet da Vinci® or other robotic surgery systems also demand direct manipulations of a doctor, and they do not produce comprehensible, automated surgical procedures by itself.

  • Through intelligent surgical robotic system, movements of doctor’s hands or dexterity is digitalized and stored. Using gesture recognition system and sophisticated robotic movements, such procedures can be effectively reproduced.
  • Intelligent surgical robotic system does not require direct manipulation and labor of an operator.
  • The surgical procedure is automatically initiated by the robot after combining and analysis of obtained, digitalized experiences and data.

*It is almost impossible for us to repeat the action once we play hole-in-one in screen golf. However, if we digitize our actions and then save them, we will be able to make hole-in-one every time
