Effectiveness of Mechanical Design Optimization Using a Human-in-the-Loop Simulator for the Development of a Pediatric Surgical Robot

In pediatric surgery, robotic technology is useful. However, it is difficult to apply this technology due to size-related problems. In our study, we proposed a mechanical design method using a human-in-the-loop type simulator, and the moving volume and invisible area were optimized. We also verified...
