Medically safe and sound [human-friendly robot dependability]


This article focuses on the issue of safety in medical robotics. It analyzes the constraints that medical robots have to satisfy. General design and manufacturing guidelines for medical robotics safety are described at three different levels according to the electromechanical, electrical and software components. The implementation of the selected guidelines is illustrated on two case studies that have resulted in the design of two intrinsically safe robots.
