Abstract:
    An ocular surgery robot that would remove human errors, guarantee efficiency and be able to perform a few surgeries without human involvement. In manual mode, it would help remove jitters in surgery.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    There are 12,807 health facilities operable in Pakistan employing around 127,859 surgeons. The rapidly growing population is not producing doctors fast enough, increasing the cases of clinical negligence due to exhaustion. This requires robot surgeons.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
    As the proposed device is targeting the physicians while proving beneficial for all, we foresee immense potential and definite economic reimbursement for our project. A start-up company can be envisioned, that would be able to create jobs for a number of people.
How will the solution works
    Our surgery robot consists of two input arms and two mimicking robotic arms. The input arms are used by a doctor. He operates with them according to his will with live feedback via cameras. This camera feed is conveyed to the doctor through the filter of virtual reality. Moreover our product is also able to make preliminary incisions on a patient’s eye automatically through image processing, 3D scanning, trajectory generation and inverse and forward kinematics.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    The Da Vinci, Hansen’s Sensei robots are some of the competitors. These robots have very defined domains and none of them operate on the eye. Our robot specializes in operating on the eye, but can be used in the manual mode to operate on the rest of the body as well.
