A Skull Mounted Robotic Head Frame for a Neurosurgical Robot
Our components are used in all manner of applications from some of Britain's most luxurious cars to space exploration, Actuonix Motion Devices are no exception.
This article describes the use of Actuonix linear actuators to provide a super accurate head-frame that interfaces with a neurosurgical robot to enhance positional accuracy.
In a research article, Jun Sheng and Jaydev P. Desai from Medical Robotics and Automation (RoboMed) lab at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, prove the concept designed to reduce the impact of surgery. Minimal invasive surgery has the advantage of reducing danger of interracial haemorrhage (bleeding in the brain), reduced pain, and faster recovery.
