Many surgical procedures are now performed using the techniques of minimally invasive surgery (MIS), in which the surgeon manipulates instruments inserted into the patients through small incisions. In MIS, the surgeon has no direct contact with internal body parts. Applying an optimal force and torque via the instruments is necessary to conduct an operation without causing any damage to the internal tissue. Most studies have so far been reported for general MIS where force-feedback is added to laparoscopic instruments using various sensing technologies (Menciassi 2001), (Song 2011). This paper reports our work on minimally invasive fracture surgery, where the issue of force feedback is as important and relates to the manual manipulation of externally fixated pins inserted in the fracture fragments to reduce the displacements.
