This paper presents a basic concept of a robot mechanism for a robot used in needle intervention procedure. The robot mechanism is devised to give variable remote center of motion to the intervention robot. This function is expected to be a good solution for two cases: correction of the needle axis and compensation of needle position due to patients' motion. The mechanism is designed with some requirements such as mobility and workspace. A kinematic analysis determines parameters of the mechanism so that the …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
