Research theme

  • Developments of robot system for surgery, welfare and nursing
  • Applications of technologies in medical robotics to maintenance of infrastructures
  • Applications of robot technology to sports science

Overview of research

Studies on control system for welfare robots which induce sense of fusion between robot and human body

Welfare robots, which precisely mimic a part of human body for fusions between these robots and the human body at cognition level, are developed.

Developments of needle insertion robot system for diagnosis and treatments

Needle insertion robots for blood collections and treatments of cancers are developed.

Development of simulators for medical skill training with functions of skill assessment

“Patient robots” for trainings of inexperienced medical professionals are developed.

Studies on robot technology for nursing

Novel applications using robot technology for nursing, which is one of the most important field in the aging society, are developed, with expectations of synergies with medical robotics and welfare robotics.
