This paper investigates mechanical design improvements for a carotid blood flow measurement robotic system. This robotic system is composed of a serial robot with a wrist having a 6-DOF parallel mechanism. Main focus is to enhance the workspace performance of the wrist. Thus, a workspace analysis is carried out by referring to a built prototype that is named as WTA-1R (Waseda-Tokyo women’s medical Aloka blood flow measurement system no.1 Refined). Then, mechanical design enhancements are proposed.
