Abstract: In this study, configuration and modeling of haptic mater device for minimally invasive surgery (MIS) featuring magneto-rheological (MR) fluid are proposed. This haptic device consists of two friction-free magneto-rheological (FFMR) brakes incorporated with a gimbal mechanism for realizing a 2-DOF rotational motion. The total torque induced from the FFMR brakes of the haptic device is computed based on Bingham model. In order to enhance the performance of the device, an optimal design for its brakes is undertaken. A prototype for the design is then manufactured and an experiment is undertaken to validate the result of the optimal design process.

Abstract: This study presents the configuration and modeling of an electro-rheological (ER) fluid-based haptic master device for minimally invasive surgery (MIS). The haptic master device can produce a 3-DOF rotational motion which is realized by ER bi-directional clutch/brake for X and Y axes and ER brake for Z axis. In order to transmit a complex rotation from the handle of the device to three rotary movements, a gimbal structure is adopted. Before manufacturing the proposed haptic master, two case of design parameters are detemined from the viewpoint of compact size and extensive workspace, respectively.
