PRISMA Hand II is a mechanically robust anthropomorphic robot hand. It is highly underactuated, as the 19 joints are driven by 3 motors via elastic tendons. Nevertheless, the hand can perform not only adaptive grasps but also in-hand manipulation.

HARMONY develops robotic mobile manipulation technologies for assisting staff in hospital environments.

KUKA Med is an anthropomorphic robotic arm used to assist physicians in different applications like rehabilitation and dental implants.

da Vinci Research Kit is a robotic system for minimally invasive surgery.

Fanny Ficuciello

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. Currently, she is Assistant Professor of Robotics and Automation at the University of Naples Federico II. She is responsible of the scientific research in surgical robotics at the Robotics Lab of ICAROS Center (Interdepartmental Center for Advances in Robotic Surgery). She is a member of Prisma Lab (Projects of Robotics for Industry and Services, Mechatronics and Automation) of 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, surgical robotics and rehabilitation robotics, human-robot interaction control, variable impedance control and redundancy resolution strategies. She is the recipient of a National Grant within the "Programma STAR Linea 1" under which she was the PI of the MUSHA (MUltifunctional Smart HAnds) project. She is responsible of the research objective MRI-TRUS fusion algorithms and control strategies for robot-assisted biopsy for the national project Bioptic Adavanced Robotic Technologies in OncoLOgy - B.A.R.T.O.LO. She has published more than 90 journal and conference papers and book chapters. 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). Recently she held the position of Treasurer of ASME Italy Section. Currently she serves as Associate Editor for Journal of Intelligent Service Robotics (JIST) and for Transactions on Robotics (T-Ro). She is on the editorial board of prestigious conferences in the field of robotics.
