Robotic System for Flexible Endoscopy

robocol

Being the most effective and widespread method that is used to detect colorectal cancer,  colonoscopy is performed at almost all medical centers. Our research aim is to design a flexible robotic endoscope that could be easily guided through the bowel and is also able to convey the best possible visual information to the surgeon during the process. Results of this study will make improvements on the utilized technology used for colonoscopy, in terms of ease of use, reduced trauma and will hopefully have major impact on successful and early diagnosis rates, preventing patient losses. The project is funded under the TUBITAK 1003 Priority Areas R&D Program for the period from 2016 to 2019.
