Human hand motion comprises intended and involuntary or erroneous motion, in which physiological tremor is the most common erroneous motion degrading manipulation accuracy in microsurgery. Many engineering approaches exist to improve microsurgery manipulation accuracy and telerobotics is a popular but costly approach. To reduce cost, Micron, a hand-held instrument that can compensate erroneous motion of a surgical tool tip is previously designed and developed.
