Continuum robots have shown immense potential in medical applications due to their inherent flexibility and adaptability. The article presents a novel approach for designing and fabricating patient-specific continuum robots using 3D printing and parametric modeling techniques. Robots can be tailored to match the patient's anatomy or clinical use case, improving accuracy and performance during medical interventions. The work describes using a parametric design platform, implemented in Rhino software using the Grasshopper plugin, to create complex geometries and manipulate variables in real-Time. The platform allows for dynamic and responsive design models, offering a flexible and efficient framework for creating patient-specific robot designs. The design parameters are defined based on clinical applications and geometrical limitations, ensuring manufacturability and printability. The proposed approach shows promising results in reducing design and manufacturing time, providing cost-effective production, and enabling customization for personalized healthcare solutions. Moreover, patient-specific robots enhance their potential in various medical applications, including targeted drug delivery, minimally invasive surgeries, and precise anatomical interventions. © 2023 IEEE.
