A mini robot for operation into the patient body is designed , based on CAD and Solid works that can help surgeons to assist in surgeries, increase their dexterity and assist them with more reliable operations to the patients. The stress analysis was done to arrive at optimum parameters of the design. The robot manufactured has two arms with 4 degree of freedom (4DOF). The robot has 2 arms with each arm consisting of a torso, upper arm and a forearm with end effector (grasper). A 2DOF shoulders joint located between the torso and the upper arm provides yaw and pitch. The materials used were biocompatible. This system will use stainless steel for driver and driven pulleys, similar to a conveyor belt. The belt is cylindrical in shape and is made of Nitinol, which is a biocompatible material. The cost of the robot is found out around $1200.
