This paper shows that industrial robot control systems can be complemented by direct human guidance to enhance the performance of skilled human workers. Gestural control exploits the processing power of the robot controller to provide the human operator with an intuitive method of interaction. The application of controlling a surgical microscope via gestural control has demonstrated that the implementation does not tax available instrumentation and promises clinical significance.
