Transcript of The Da Vinci Robot

The Da Vinci Surgical System By: Jenna, Jessica, and Mackenzie What task does the robot perform? What human function does the robot replace? Is the robotic end effector multifunctional?
If so, what other tasks can it perform? Where is the robot used? How many degrees of freedom or flexible joints does it have? The Da Vinci robot can perform various types of minimally-invasive surgery, such as open heart surgery. Used in hospitals world wide to perform minimally invasive surgery
Four arms
Wrist like joints
7 degrees of freedom
90 degrees of articulation Some of the many surgeries Da Vinci can perform:

Bladder Cancer
Coronary Artery Disease
Kidney Disorders
Kidney Cancer
Throat Cancer Yes!

manipulation of a wide range of tissues
suturing with many needles
vessel clipping
beating-heart surgery Works Cited
Application of Biomedical Engineering in Force and Tactile Sensing for Robotic

Courses/BI108/BI108_2005_Groups/04/davinci.html>. How is the Robot taught to perform its task? The robot is controlled by the surgeon, who moves the arms and the end effectors in order to perform the surgery. Jobs And Careers Involved with the Da Vinci surgical system Jobs in MANY fields Jobs engineering and manufacturing Jobs selling and marketing Jobs using (performing the surgery) the DaVinci robot and also training new surgeons Name some advantages and disadvantages of using a robot to complete this task Advantages:
easier to control
less pain
minimally invasive
less probability of infection What sensors does the robot have and how does the robot use these sensors? Disadvantages:
difficult to produce
lack of tactile sensation
still too big to be used in children · Sensors located in four places: At tip of instrument, shaft (inside and outside patient’s body), near an actuation mechanism

· Sense friction, forces
· Senses vary for different levels of complexity

http://bme240.eng.uci.edu/students/10s/sgupta1/ForceTactileSensing.html Describe the impact that this robot has had or could have on its intended audience. Predict and explain how this robot may be altered to perform more or different tasks in the future

•less expensive
•more tactile sensation for the doctor
•smaller size There is minimal scarring because of the smaller incision. This also means a shorter recovery time. The Da Vinci makes surgery easier. It is more precise than an actual surgeon. Patients live happier, healthier lives after undergoing surgery by the Da Vinci system. Thanks for watching!
Any Questions? 1.) What are 2 fields in which the Da Vinci system creates new jobs? 2.) What are some advantages of using the Da Vinci surgical system? 3.) What are some disadvantages? 4.) What are 2 different surgeries that the Da Vinci can perform? 5.) What do the sensors on the Da Vinci robot's sense? QUIZ!!!
(Were you paying attention?) Selling, marketing, manufacturing, engineering Minimally invasive, makes smaller incisions, shorter recovery time Expensive, difficult to produce, lack of tactile sensation Open-heart surgery, surgeries for Bladder Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease Friction, forces, (may vary depending on complexity of robot)
