Funded Studentship in Electromagnetic Systems for Medical Applications
University College Cork and Tyndall National Institute
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
This project will involve the design and development of novel magnetic field sensing and actuation solutions for medical applications. The project is a key enabler to replace large surgical incisions by smaller needle and natural orifice access to surgical targets. Magnetic fields may provide the key to this challenge and this project seeks to use electromagnetic fields to sense and position instruments and organs during minimally invasive and robotic surgery. The project will demonstrate novel electromagnetic systems incorporating miniaturised inductive sensing, advanced electromagnetic circuit control algorithms, and electro-permanent magnetic coupling. Electromagnetic sensing is the gold standard in the absence of line of sight and is widely used with discrete inductive sensing. UCC School of Engineering and Tyndall National Institute has a strong track record in novel electromagnetic tracking technology (http://openemt.org) and has developed the first open-source, cross-platform electromagnetic tracking system, Anser EMT. Tyndall National Institute is a global leader in integrated magnetics technology (https://www.tyndall.ie/integrated-magnetics)
