Medical Robots

what tasks does the robot perform?
the task the medical robots can perform:
- they can perform surgeries
- they can do doctors' morning rounds
- they can help people with their health problems

is the robotic end effector multi-functional? if so, what other tasks does it perform?
describe the impact that this robot has had or could have on its intended audience.
the medical robot has already impacted some hospitalized surgeries. Later on in the future, the medical robots would be used more often and across the country.
Describe the idea you think is best
Refer back to the pros and cons
Explain how it will help
Describe the next steps
Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures
what human functions does the robot have?
The human functions the medical robots have are:
- the hand
- the arms
where is the robot used?
the medical robot is used:
- in hospitals to perform surgeries
what is the robot's work envelope (how many degrees of freedom/flexible joints does it have?)
degrees of freedom:
flexible joints:
yes, the robotic end effector is multi-functional. it can take care of sick people and help doctor with things such as operations.
how is the robot taught to perform its task?
what sensors does the robot have and how does the robot use these sensors?
name some advantages and disadvantages of using a robot to complete this task?
Raise control arm to index
Open manipulator fingers to index
Turn motor shaft clockwise to index point
Turn motor shaft counter-clockwise
Lower control arm until resistance is detected on manipulator 'down' pressure switch
close manipulator fingers until fingertip pressure detector detects resistance
Raise control arm
turn motor shaft clockwise
good accuracy
doesn't get tired
protected from radiation
can process multiple sources of data
sensors medical robots have are:
proximity sensors
range sensors
tactile sensors

Medical robots use proximity sensors to find the presence of a human being in the work volume so that the accidents can be reduced. the range sensors are used to calculate the distance between the sensor and a work part. and the tactile sensors are sensing devices that specifies the contact between an object.
cost a lot of money
do not have good judgement
trouble adjusting to new situations
less hand-eye coordination
less sensing ability
less dexterity
what types of jobs/careers can this robot create to provide employment for people?
the types of jobs/careers the medical robots create for people is training to do surgery, robotically. doctors and nurses, that are undergoing training, can be on standby.
predict and explain how this robot may be alternated to perform more or different tasks in the future.
in the future, this robot may:
become cheaper
become more efficient for medical surgery
there might be more detailed robots to operate and
there might be a medical robot for any illness.
