Design and Development of Surgical Wire Twister

2017-2018 Summer
Faculty Department of Project Supervisor: 
Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences
Number of Students: 

This project aims to design and development of laparoscopic-surgery tools or the tools those might be adapted for robotic surgery. The team of surigcal robotics project consists of a surgeon, mechatronics, electronics engineers. We intent to design a novel device or improve an existing device to provide safer, precise, confortable and effective sugeries both for patients and surgeons. We always investigate whether our proposed tool/system is compatible for the robotic-assisted surgery. We use 3D printers to obtain the prototypes of the designed devices. The students will learn Solidworks, using 3D printers and perform experiments using their developed devices.
