Three DOF mechanical motion converter for arc shaped forceps used in pharyngeal cancer surgery
Transactions of the JSME (in Japanese)
In pharyngeal cancer surgery, an arc-shaped forceps is used for operations in the curved narrow working space of the throat. A flexible endoscope is also used because the affected portion is not visible directly. Due to the difference between the direction of the endoscopic view and that of the forceps handle, control of the forceps is not intuitive and the surgeons are required of high manipulation skills. In this paper, we propose a 3-DOF mechanical motion converter, which converts thedoi:10.1299/transjsme.14-00096 fatcat:o7av634fqrb5fkjfdalgtua644
