Abstract

Endoscopes and catheters are already widely used and new more precise examinations and diagnoses are required. Small medical devices with several functions for use in the human body can be realized installing microsensors and microactuators in the medical devices. We have developed several microdevices for minimally invasive examinations and therapies using MEMS and related micro-fabrication technologies. A dynamic tactile pin display which displays Braille characters and graphic information has also been developed using the micro actuators.
