Psychomotor skills assessment by motion analysis in minimally invasive surgery on an animal organ
Background: A high level of psychomotor skills is required to perform minimally invasive surgery (MIS) safely. To be able to measure these skills is important in the assessment of surgeons, as it enables constructive feedback during training. The aim of this study was to test the validity of an obje...
Lack of transfer of skills after virtual reality simulator training with haptic feedback
CustusX: an open-source research platform for image-guided therapy
Purpose CustusX is an image-guided therapy (IGT) research platform dedicated to intraoperative navigation and ultrasound imaging. In this paper, we present CustusX as a robust, accurate, and extensible platform with full access to data and algorithms and show examples of application in technological...
Comparing new generation virtual reality simulators from Simbionix LTD and Surgical Science AB
The role of technology enhanced learning in surgical education as perceived by stakeholders
Procedural virtual reality simulation in minimally invasive surgery
Limitations of haptic feedback devices on construct validity of the LapSim® virtual reality simulator
Perceiving haptic feedback in virtual reality simulators
Background To improve patient safety, training of psychomotor laparoscopic skills is often done on virtual reality (VR) simulators outside the operating room. Haptic sensations have been found to influence psychomotor performance in laparoscopy. The emulation of haptic feedback is thus an important ...
A study of psychomotor skills in minimally invasive surgery: what differentiates expert and nonexpert performance
Background A high level of psychomotor skills is required to perform minimally invasive surgery (MIS) safely. To assure high quality of skills, it is important to be able to measure and assess these skills. For that, it is necessary to determine aspects that indicate the difference between performan...
