Medical Robots Design

2021 ~ Present | Faculty's startup grant

Goals

The goal of this team is to develop novel continuum and soft robotic hardware, create the modeling, control, and perception framework, and apply these new designs in the medical and agriculture field. The potential applications of these continuum robots include MRI guided brachytherapy,  image-guided biopsy, whole-body MRI scanning.
