Abstract

Four papers in the Medical Robotics session provided a sample of investigations currently performed and experimentally validated in some of the areas where robots enhance the exploration of the livingness: orthosis where a robot is linked to a human arm with a potential rehabilitation functionality, intra-cardiac catheter explorations with a teleoperated system and, at the microscopic scale, robotically enhanced methods to ease cells manipulation.
