Abstract

Purpose:Developments in vitreo-retinal eye surgery are limited by human capabilities. To improve current vitreo-retinal surgical procedures and to enable new procedures, a robotic system has been developed, extending human capabilities. Methods:A compact, lightweight, easy to setup robotic master-slave system has been realized to perform vitreo-retinal eye surgery (Slave see Figure 1, Master see Figure 2). The system’s reach covers the major part of the vitreous cavity (up to the peripheral region). A combination of advanced mechanical and control design facilitates high accuracy (
