The surgical flexible operative microscope is primarily designed with an aim to enhance the range of view for surgeons during surgical practices. The existing surgical tools do not allow an angular field of view, thereby limiting depth information, which is critical for neurosurgical analysis and any further surgical actions. The proposed neurosurgical setup offers 5 degrees of freedom (DOF) which allows the movement of the probe in three translational directions to reach a specific region of interest, and enables additional angular motion in pitch and yaw direction to view the depth information.

Above image represents the Schematic of a novel robotic flexible microscope.

The proposed design will help in providing competent field of view to surgeons to locate tumours or lesions deep inside the brain. The operating microscope will also aid in inserting tools through hollow space of the microscope body especially in lieu of small and tight surgical workspace.
