An input control device with force sensors is configured to sense hand movements of a surgeon performing a robot-assisted microsurgery. The sensed hand movements actuate a mechanically decoupled robot manipulator. A microsurgical manipulator, attached to the robot manipulator, is activated to move small objects and perform microsurgical tasks. A force-feedback element coupled to the robot manipulator and the input control device provides the input control device with an amplified sense of touch in the microsurgical manipulator.
1. A microsurgery system, comprising:a robot manipulator having a plurality of mechanically decoupled joints, said plurality of mechanically decoupled joints allowing actuation of a joint without affecting motion of any other joints; an effector coupled to said robot manipulator to apply a force to an object; and a force feedback element adapted to amplify a return force from said effector.
