We present a methodology for movement recognition in hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery (HALS) using a textile-based sensing glove. The aim of this procedure is to recognize the commands given by the surgeon’s hand inside the patient’s abdominal cavity to guide a collaborative robot. The glove, which incorporates piezoresistive sensors, continuously captures the degree of flexion of the surgeon's fingers. These data are analyzed to precisely define the movements of the surgeon's hand and translate them into commands for the collaborative robot. View the paper here.
