- Vision and task assistance using modular wireless in vivo surgical robotsStephen R Platt
University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE 68566, USA
IEEE Trans Biomed Eng 56:1700-10. 2009..They could ultimately be carried and deployed by nonmedical personnel at the site of an injury to allow a remotely located surgeon to provide critical first response medical intervention irrespective of the location of the patient...
- Towards an in vivo wireless mobile robot for surgical assistanceJeff A Hawks
University of Nebraska, Department of Mechanical Engineering, NE, USA
Stud Health Technol Inform 132:153-8. 2008..Such wireless in vivo robots are much more transportable and lower cost than current robotic surgical assistants, and could ultimately allow a surgeon to become a remote first responder irrespective of the location of the patient...
