HipRob - Robot-assisted and ultrasound-guided navigation for hip resurfacing arthroplasty


The objective of the HipRob collaborative experiment is to integrate a robotic system that will aid orthopaedic surgeons in performing Hip Resurfacing prosthesis surgery with consistent high accuracy and precision. A co-manipulation robotic solution for hip resurfacing surgery based on variable impedance control for physical surgeon-robot interaction will be developed, as well as an ultrasound image sensor for non-invasive real-time bone tracking. The innovative co-manipulation setting to the medical gesture brings together the higher geometric accuracy and precision of the robot manipulator with the higher sensibility and decision making capability of the surgeon when applying force, thus resulting in clear benefits for patients, doctors and hospitals.
