Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Institute demonstrates a new surgical tool using New Scale’s piezoelectric micro hexapod.


This video, from the Surgical Mechatronics Lab at Carnegie Mellon University, shows how the new “Micron” handheld tool improves microsurgery through active tremor cancellation for better control of a tool tip. Applications shown are in vitreo retinal surgery, handheld scanning for intraocular optical coherence tomography (OCT), and automated intraocular laser photocoagulation.
