Medical robotic applications are increasing in operation rooms. It is necessary to select, locate and program appropriate robots for medical operations. SolidWorks and CosmosMotion controlled by the modeling and motion simulation programs created in VisualBASIC in this study are used for this purpose. The designer prepares the model input file which contains the information about the selected units and their locations in the room. The unit folders are prepared using the models of the producers given in the Web sites. The unit folders prepared once can be used for other applications. The motion input file is prepared and the motions of the robots are simulated using the motion simulation program. Locations and animations of the robots are studied visually and the design is evaluated for the final decision.
