Continuum Robots for Surgical Systems - Designing and controlling concentric tube continuum robots in humans

In CROSS we were leveraging concentric tube continuum robots in surgical systems. Our research focused on computational design optimization, motion planning algorithms as well as system design and human robot interaction. Potential medical applications include endonasal skull base surgery, transurethral kidney stone removal, and transcranial hemorrhage treatment.
