Abstract: The supracondylar humerus fracture is one of the most common and challenging injury faced by pediatric orthopedic surgeons. Its treatment may lead to many neurological and vascular complications. This is mainly due to the "blind" pinning performed by surgeons to fix the fractured elbow's fragments. Furthermore, the medical staff is usually exposed to a high level of radiations during the surgery because of the fluoroscopically assisted treatment. Thus, a new robotized platform baptized BROS is developed in Tunisia to remedy this issue and allow performing a safer surgery. BROS is reconfigurable and may run under several operating modes, meeting, thus, the surgeon's requirements and the environment constraints. This paper introduces this new robotic platform and a real case of robot-assisted surgery is simulated to check the performances of BROS.
