Mohsen Akbari Shandiz, A. Mirbagheri, F. Farahmand "Minimally invasive surgical robot with adjustable spatial pivot point". (In progress)

 Abstract: One of the main problems of minimally invasive robotic surgery is the injury caused to the incision point of abdominal wall via undesirable moments applied by the mechanism with constant pivot point. The present invention provides a surgical robot with the ability of adjusting its spatial pivot point vertically, to eliminate those undesirable moments.
