A robotic arm to aid to place probe

Problem: Difficult to position ultrasound probe at the rectum of patient due to lack of degree of freedom

NEED Statement: A robotic arm is introduced to place the probe into patient’s rectum by reducing discomfort for the patient and enabling better positioning of the probe with more degrees of freedom.

Beneficiary: Patient,Surgeon

Description: A robotic arm with the following attributes:

  • Arm with at least four nodes
  • Joystick for maneuvering the arm
  • A handler to move it manually by hand
  • Fixating points (locking) to achieve more stability in the required position

Result:

  • A robotic arm would increase degrees of freedom for maneuvering the probe increasing accuracy of the treatment
  • Provide a more comfortable intervention procedure for the doctor.
  • Time saving
