Robot-assisted endoscope guidance
During manual laparoscopic interventions, the surgeon does not have direct visual control of the operating field as in open surgery, but orientates himself by the laparoscopic image displayed on a monitor. It is the task of an assistant to guide the laparoscope such that the field of view is optimal for the surgeon. This task is exhausting and requires high concentration. Even small movements such as tremor upon fatigue or wrong orientation due to misunderstandings disturb the operating procedure. The necessary instructions to the assistant distract the surgeon.
