Preface

  • The compensation for tissue deformation is a significant concern in computer-assisted navigation for soft organ surgeries. In brain surgeries, brain shift depends on surgical conditions, but migh ... Read More

  • Laparoscopic surgery reduces patient invasiveness; however, the burden on the surgeons is high because such surgery requires them to have skills higher than those for open procedures. In particul ... Read More

  • Muscles of the forearm are related to finger motion, and the forearm is divided into the anterior and posterior compartments. The anterior compartment of the forearm is further divided into the s ... Read More

  • Toward reducing the effect of delay on motion transmission to a remote place, methods of forecasting human motion with subsecond preceding time have been studied. In this paper, we verified wheth ... Read More

  • The increasing population of stroke survivors naturally produces needs for more effective rehabilitation systems for both patients and therapists. Robotic therapies are widely studied and practic ... Read More

  • A hybrid brain–computer interface (hBCI) has recently been proposed to address the limitations of existing single-modal brain computer interfaces (BCIs) in terms of accuracy and information tra ... Read More

  • We propose an interface for the tele-operation of a laparoscope-holder robot via head movement using facial feature point detection. Fourteen feature points on the operator’s face are detected ... Read More

  • In minimally invasive robotic surgeries, insertion ports become the fulcrum of surgical instruments such as forceps. Misalignment between the insertion port and the remote center of motion (RCM) ... Read More

  • A pair of miniaturized robotic forceps with a flexible wrist joint has a problem of a trade-off relationship between rigid and flexible characteristics of the joint with metal parts. Regarding th ... Read More

  • In this paper, a single-degree-of-freedom robot for assisting ophthalmologic surgery is proposed. A soft linear actuator drives the robot, and a needle attached to the tip punctures the cornea. T ... Read More

  • A gait training method that can adjust the target load for a trainee is required to meet various demands for training. In this paper, a leg load increase training method using a soft gait-assisti ... Read More
