Abstract

Manual micro-surgical tasks are fundamentally divided into grasping, cutting and injecting maneuvers performed on biological tissues. Efficient dissection of fibrous tissue from the surface of the retina often requires grasping and cutting maneuvers carried out simultaneously. True bimanual surgery requires that the surgeon contend with the innate hand tremor of two hands at once as well as unpredicted patient's movement. In this study, we develop and test a dual SMART micro-surgical system to suppress bimanual hand tremor during micro-surgical dissection.
