Enhancements for a pneumatically actuated liver phantom that simulates respiratory motion

MSc assignment

This thesis explores enhancements for a pneumatically actuated liver phantom designed to simulate respiratory motion, focusing on the integration of pneumatic actuation methods and robotic control strategies. By leveraging a mechanical engineering approach combined with insights from Robotics and Mechatronics, the project aims to improve the phantom's robustness and realism in simulating respiratory dynamics of a liver.

The enhancements seek to refine the existing setup, ensuring it serves as a more effective tool for medical research and
education, particularly in the study of liver motion during respiration.
