Abstract

The Mechatronic Engineer José Cornejo presented in his Undergraduate Thesis at Ricardo Palma University, the design of a surgical system prototype, which has an anthropomorphic robotic arm with 5 degrees of freedom called Biomedik Surgeon, used in simulation to research in the field of Biomedical Engineering, with the purpose of training the surgical skills in medical students using concepts of Medical Robotics, and in this way prepare the future physicians of Peru to offer advanced technology care in Surgery. The term Surgical Engineering was introduced, which is an area that involves the multidisciplinary work among engineers, architects and health professionals in the path of creating technologies to provide high quality care for the surgical patient and to improve the attention processes in Surgical Centers in Peru. The medical description of the Surgical Robotic System was deepened, where criteria of mechanical, electronic, electrical and software control were applied to build a prototype based on international standards of advanced technologies used in the area of surgery. Finally, the training and simulation tests in Minimally Invasive Surgery techniques were performed with the use of a cutting tool. The successful accreditation of the project was granted by the Scientific Society of Medical Students at the Faculty of Human Medicine «Manuel Huamán Guerrero»-Ricardo Palma University.
