Kinematic analysis of a new parallel robotic system for minimally invasive therapy of non-resecable hepatic tumors
The paper presents the conceptual development of a new parallel ro-botic system for the local intraoperatory treatment of non-resecable live tumors. A new structure with two independent parallel arms is introduced and the geo-metrical model of one of the arms is presented in detail. The workspace analysis shows the robot capability of targeting any area of the liver and provides some insides regarding the relative robot-patient positioning at the start of the procedure.
