A futuristic robot who can take the place of surgeons today. Some examples of surgeries it has the ability to perform are gynecologic, urologic, cardiac, thoracic, and other surgeries that require a large incision to be made.
The robot is used all over the world, except in countries that are limited in money because it costs about $1.75 Million to make each robot. The robot has four interactive arms which each have different function and “wrists” with a degree movement of 8 per each wrist.
It’s main use is to perform surgeries that would otherwise leave large and noticeable scars for the patient. It also has the ability to perform small scaled surgeries that the surgeon would have difficulties performing with their larger hands. It has also been tested with some fun activities, such as doing origami, playing Operation, and peeling the skin off of a grape.origamiOperationgrape
The robot is operated by the surgeon, from a hand control and a 3-D surgical field around him or her. This can be seen by a small camera inside the patient. The arms and tools mimic the hand movements of the surgeon’s hands.
The surgeon’s area has the ability to send sensors to the arms and “wrists” of the tool, to mimic the action done by the surgeon. The surgeon basically performs the surgery with his or her own hands, but the robot mimics the motion.
The surgeon can perform more precisely and have more control of the surgery The patient will not have a large incision/scar when they heal.
The da Vinci Surgical System also costs a lot of money, so hospitals may or may not be able to afford it. There is also still some room for human error because the surgeon still performs the surgeon.
Less room for human mistakes, like steady hands etc. People will no longer have large scars in the future from past surgeries.
It must be built and assembled by people People must design the technology to create the robot People sell the robots People must inspect the robot to make sure it is functioning properly
Could add more joints so it may be more flexible in the future and perform tasks more easier The equipment could be smaller, and less bulkier in the future.
