5 March 2015 SMART micro-scissors based precise incision
Author Affiliations +
Hand tremor reduction is important to achieve stable micro manipulation of the tool tip. A micro-scissors can be used for cutting delicate tissues safely. Here, we implement an OCT distance sensor guided SMART micro-scissors which could incise micro-surgical targets precisely and horizontally. Compared to freehand incision, it demonstrates enhanced incision performance on dry phantoms with great tremor suppression.
