Abstract

In this paper, a surgical robot platform with a novel concentric connector joint (CCJ) is presented. The surgical robot is a parallel robot platform comprised of multiple struts, arranged in a geometrically stable array, connected at their end points via the CCJ. The CCJ joints have nearperfect concentricity of rotation around the node point, which enables the tension and compression forces of the struts to be resolved in a structurally-efficient manner. The preliminary feasibility tests, modelling, and simulations were introduced.

KeywordsSurgical robotics; parallel robot platform; form-changing space frames; concentric connector joint
