Transcript of Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System

The Da Vinci
Robotic Surgery System by Ivan Romero, Jack Snow,
Victoria Lee http://science.howstuffworks.com/robotic-surgery.htm 1.What task does the robot perform? What kind of human function or task does this robot simulate? sources -smaller incision
-quicker recovery
-reduced bleeding
-simpler procedure
-more sanitary Pros and Cons -could malfunction
-more time consuming
-more education needed to operate Performs surgery that requires
smaller tools; it takes the place of a sugeon 2. Where is the robot used? What is its work envelope? How many flexible joints does it have? It's used in a hospital and it has seven degrees of freedom 3.Is the robotic end effector multi-functional? If so, what other tasks can it preform? Yes, the Da Vinci robot is multi-functional because you can change its parts and do different kinds of surgery from Radical prostatectomy, pyeloplasty, cystectomy, nephrectomy, and ureteral reimplantation, to name a few. 4.How is this robot taught to preform its tasks? This robot is performing because it is being operated by a doctor who puts his hands in the "joystick" of the Da Vinci and it moves the "arms" of the Da Vinci. 5. What sensors do the robot have and how does the robot use these sensors? 7. Describe the impact that this robot has had or could have on its intended audience? The impact made by this device
is that now people who couldn't get surgery that were in remote locations can now get it if
a surgeon is willing to do it. 8.What types of job careers can this robot create to provide employment for people? It makes three jobs. The first would be especialy trained surgeons, the second is people who create the machine, and the third is people who will manage and take care of it. 9.Predict and explain how this robot may be altered to preform more or different tasks in the future. I think in the future they will upgrade this robot to be able to control itself without having to have a person controlling it and will have an AI and do multiple surgeries.

The device uses cameras and force sensors. The cameras are used so the surgeon can see what he is doing. The force sensors are for the surgeon so he knows how much force he is putting on the patient with thte robot. 6. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18382995 http://jimtsutsui.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/davinci_surgical_system.jpg
