Last week our surgical robotics team from Program 2 welcomed Hon. Meaghan Scanlon MP, Minister for Science and Youth, to QUT and gave an overview of some of the Centre’s research.
Dr Jing Peng, Morgan Windsor and Prof Michael Milford shared insights into the development of new robotics systems for orthopedic surgery applications. They got to demo the new visual localization-based k-wire placement techniques, where our robot can repeatedly and reliably position the wire into a scapula model correctly.
The project team also includes Centre Deputy Director, Prof Peter Pivonka and Program 2 Lead, A/Prof Saulo Martelli as well as our expert clinical team members Dr’s Ashish Gupta and Ken Cutbush.
