Comprehensively covers the key technologies for the development of
tactile perception in minimally invasive surgery
Covering the timely topic of tactile sensing and display in
minimally invasive and robotic surgery, this book comprehensively
explores new techniques which could dramatically reduce the need
for invasive procedures. The tools currently used in minimally
invasive surgery (MIS) lack any sort of tactile sensing,
significantly reducing the performance of these types of
procedures. This book systematically explains the various
technologies which the most prominent researchers have proposed to
overcome the problem. Furthermore, the authors put forward their
own findings, which have been published in recent patents and
patent applications. These solutions offer original and creative
means of surmounting the current drawbacks of MIS and robotic
