Faculty Members Introduction

Makoto Jinno Full professor
Laboratory Laboratory of robotics and mechatronics
Main research interests Laparoscopic surgery support robots / devices; cell processing robots
Research overview There are many potential needs and manifested issues that can be addressed by applying robot mechatronics and mechanism technology. We propose a new system and mechanism for addressing these needs and issues, and research on robot mechatronics is being conducted aimed at practical use, from concept design to prototype, evaluation, and verification. Our field of research includes (1) diagnosis, treatment, and surgery support in medical fields; (2) nursing care, welfare, and living and nursing support at home; (3) work support in special environments, such as the universe, nuclear power, and disaster site; and (4) automation and efficiency of work in production factories and medical-related sites.
