Assists Dr. Robot
But how does the "Freehand" camera holder robot port, which can be controlled and zoomed with both head and feet, work?
Let's watch it in action: The recording was taken during a gall bladder operation, the operating physician is Dr. Péter Sipos, chief operating physician of the Duna Medical Center. A small sensor is located on the surgeon's head, and if activated with the foot, the robot starts to move the camera in the direction of the head nod. The robot can move left-right, up-down, and thanks to zoom, it can also move in and out. After installing the structure, the surgeon does not have to give instructions, but can do his work independently and set the image that suits him best. As a result, we get a jitter-free, sharp image. The lack of assistance does not lengthen but shortens the surgical time. The robot performed excellently during the operation, but in our video we only show the beginning of the operation, where the structure is clearly visible.
