Abstract

Robotic devices have made inroads in various areas of medical practice. This paper offers a design of robot kinematics for ultrasound probe manipulation to obtain reproducible Achilles tendon images for quantifying injury or response to treatment. The design includes a motor-controlled 4-DOF arm with an additional smaller, passive four-bar linkage mount for the ultrasound probe to optimize surface contact with the subject and increase the mobility to 5 DOF.
