Transcript of Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System

The Da Vinci
Robotic Surgery System by Madi Register and
Riley Tarsi 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 of medical field 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 while your looking in the screen the arms of the Da Vinci robot are moving. 4.How is this robot taught to preform its tasks? This robot is performing because it is being operating it. The doctor puts his hands in the sockets 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? It does impact the audience because this machine is taking peoples life in its own "hands" to operate on these people. 8.What types of job careers can this robot create to provide employment for people? It makes more jobs for the people creating the robots because there getting more popular. 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 Concusion 1. How do you feel about the future use of robots in our society? I think it's a good idea to use robots for some things. But not everything. For instance, some jobs are meant to be JUST for humans. Like how would you feel if you went out to eat and your waitress was a robot? 2. What do you think about "giving up" control to a robot Conclusion I think it could be a good thing and a bad thing. And example of a good thing is that doesn't take as long as regular human operation, but something could go wrong and it could malfunction.

At present, the da Vinci surgical robot system does not provide haptic feedback. One of the authors has proposed a contact-force sensing method called the 'overcoat method', in which the instrument/driver is supported by force sensors. In the da Vinci robot, the instrument jaws are powered by a wire-pulley mechanism; thus, in order to apply the overcoat method to the da Vinci system, we must transfer the power through a frame that is supported by force sensors. 6. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18382995 http://jimtsutsui.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/davinci_surgical_system.jpg
