Abstract
There is a need for instrument motion sensing with sufficient accuracy for microsurgery. An instrument featuring six-degree-of-freedom (6-dof) inertial sensing of intraoperative motion has been developed. With rms noise of 7.8 mm/s/sup 2/ and 1.1 mdeg/s and bandwidth over 20 Hz, it is capable of capturing both gross motion and microscopic movements, e.g., hand tremor. Preliminary results are presented.
