Robotic surgery makes it possible to perform highly complicated and precise operations. Surgical robots have limitations, too. For one, the surgeon does not 'feel' the force of his incision or of his pull on the suture, and robots are also big and clumsy to make use of. Therefore TU/e researcher Linda van den Bedem created a a lot more compact surgical robot, which uses 'force feedback' to permit the surgeon to feel what he or she is doing.   Read more...
