The Mechatronics in Medicine Laboratory is developing a number of robotic and mechatronics systems to aid in medical and surgical tasks. The research group is currently involved in projects regarding:
One of the main thrusts behind the MIM’s current research centres on development of advanced technologies for surgery. Of particular interest to the group are Computer and Robotic Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery (CAOS) and micro-neurosurgery, both of which benefit from over two decades of pioneering research in the field.
- STING Project: Biomimetic Flexible and Steerable Probe for Neurosurgery
- Active constraints for robot-assisted neurosurgery
