In this course, we will investigate the application, functionality, and theoretical aspects of the state-of-the-art interactive robotic technologies in medicine. The focus of the course will be on advanced surgical, and neurorehabilitative robotic systems. Technological aspects, such as instrumentation, actuation, mechanisms, imaging, and signal acquisition, will be introduced. Also, theoretical aspects related to control, dynamics, kinematics, haptics, stability, passivity, human-robot interaction, teleoperation, machine learning and bio-signal processing will be discussed in the context of medical robotic systems. Students are expected to be fluent in MATLAB and have solid background in at least two of the following four topics: signal processing, dynamics, control, robotics.
