A Microsurgery-Specific Haptic Hand-controller

Hand-controllers form an integral part of a remotely operated (telecapable) robotic system. Based on assessment and comparison of multiple existing haptic hand controllers, OrbSurgical Ltd. has designed and manufactured a unique microsurgery-specific haptic device called neuroArmPLUSHD.

Supported by a federal grant, the technology is being readied to link to the next generation tele-operated surgical robotic system being built by the group. neuroArmPLUSHD, with a pending patent and multiple scientific publications underway, is a technology that will be adapted to other standalone surgical education and gaming platforms.
