Abstract

Motion coordination between the operating table and imaging or surgical devices is becoming increasingly relevant for minimally invasive procedures in the hybrid operating room. In this paper, we presented a mathematical framework for the generation of a virtual remote center of motion (RCM) for a 5 degrees-of-freedom (DOFs) motorized surgical table. The capability of the table to synchronize its orientation to a rotating paired medical device was also addressed. The table inverse kinematic problem was solved by efficient algorithms, which were tested in a virtual simulation environment using a parametrized table model. The proposed solutions support arbitrary RCM position and can be adapted to different 5-DOFs table models by parameter tuning.
