While multi-fingered robotic hands have been developed for decades, none has been used for surgical operations. MicroAngelo is an anthropomorphic master-slave system for tele-operated robot-assisted surgery. As part of this system, this paper focuses on its slave instrument, a miniature three-digit hand. The design of the mechanism of such a manipulator poses a challenge due to the required miniaturization and the many active degrees of freedom. As the instrument has a human-centered design, its relation to the human hand is discussed. Two ways of routing its cable-driven mechanism are investigated and the method of deriving the input-output functions that drive the mechanism is presented.
