Medical Robotics @ Prisma Lab & ICAROS Center
PRISMA Hand II, is a mechanically robust anthropomorphic robot hand. The hand is highly underactuated, as the 19 joints are driven by three motors via elastic tendons. Nevertheless, the hand can perform not only adaptive grasps but also in-hand manipulation.
Portable da Vinci, is a simulator of the first generation da Vinci robot based on a V-REP simulator of the patient side and endoscopic camera manipulators which are controlled through two haptic interfaces and a 3D viewer, respectively.

Fanny Ficuciello received the Laurea degree magna cum laude in Mechanical Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Computer and Automation Engineering both at the University of Naples Federico II in 2007 and 2010 respectively. From September 2009 to March 2010 she was a visiting scholar in the Control Engineering Group at the University of Twente (Netherlands). Currently, she is Assistant Professor of Industrial Bioengineering at the University of Naples Federico II. Her research activity is focused on biomechanical design and bio-aware control strategies for anthropomorphic artificial hands, grasping and manipulation with hand/arm and dual arm robotic systems, human-robot interaction control, variable impedance control and redundancy resolution strategies. Recently she is involved also on surgical robotics research projects, as a member of the ICAROS center (Interdepartmental Center for Advances in Robotic Surgery) of the University of Naples Federico II. From 2008 she is member of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society and from 2017 she received the upgrade to IEEE Senior Member. From 2018 she is in the Technology Committee of the European Association of Endoscopic Surgery (EAES). Currently she serves as associate editor of Transactions on Robotics (T-Ro) and of Journal of Intelligent Service Robotics (JIST).
