Abstract [en]

The biggest technical development within the field of surgery is focused on minimal invasive procedures. With new robot assisted solutions can the surgeons work more precise with a great level of flexibility. The work is nevertheless connected to a long set-up time and big costs. This project, based on pure user studies and in-depth surgery observations, discovers a possibility to, in a cost efficient way, offer robot benefits to an open surgery scenario. With a minimal effort can the surgeon merge the suggested product concept into their regular workflow and enhance the stability in their movements, get improved vision and aid in holding tissue in static positions.
