New therapies, such as cell implants, will in future require teleoperators capable of repeatable positioning accuracy of 10µm and better. This paper describes the design of a Stewart platform (hexapod robot system) which can be used for precision microsurgery in a number of different medical disciplines. The system design is discussed in detail and an overview of potential applications is given. Also, results are reported on the application in neuroendoscopy.
