Physiological Tremor Amplitude During Vitreoretinal Microsurgery. Singh, S. P. N. and Riviere, C. N. In Proceedings of the 28th Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference, pages 171-172, 2002.
doi  abstract   bibtex   
Using an instrumented surgical tool, high-precision recordings of hand tremor were taken during vitreoretinal microsurgery. The data obtained using a compact, custom six-degree-of-freedom inertial sensing module were filtered and analyzed to characterize the physiological hand tremor of the surgeon. Tremor during the most delicate part of the procedure was measured at a vector magnitude of 38 μm rms. Nontremulous, lower-frequency components of instrument movement were also characterized. The data collected provide an important baseline for design specification and performance evaluation of engineered microsurgical devices
