In traditional medical ultrasound treatment, the doctor’s hand needs to take the ultrasonic scanner and move it around the wound location. In this study, the ultrasonic scanner is grasped by a robotic arm, and the doctor uses the remote control robotic arm system to move the ultrasonic scanner around the wound location. In addition, a force sensor is installed on the robotic arm to sense the force feedback of the robotic arm touching the patient’s body. The doctor uses the robotic arm to operate the ultrasonic scanner as if they were operating it themselves. The results show that through our developed long-distance robotic arm ultrasound system, the doctor can treat patients without the need for contact with them.Corresponding author: Cheng-Yan Siao
