Abstract
This paper describes a test prototype for precision robot-assisted surgery using a hexapod operating robot and a movable operating cockpit. The objective of the work described is twofold: 1: To evaluate the use of hexapod robots for precisely manipulating endoscopes and surgical instruments in submillimeter surgery. 2: To test a new user interface concept based on motion feedback. Based on the principle of a flight simulator, the aim is to give the surgeon motion cues in addition to the endoscope image, to assist his spatial orientation. The paper gives a detailed description of the system components and the potential applications.
