In standard laparoscopic procedures, instrument changes account for a significant amount of time; they interrupt the surgeon' s concentration and involve a reorientation of the new instrument at the region of interest. To further improve the patients' and surgeons' situation an automated system for fast exchange of laparoscopic instruments is standing on the clinical wishlist already for a long time. An in strument exchange system (lES) for this purpose has recently been developed at Fraunhofer IPA in Stuttgart, Germany.
